Their are a large number of different birds at this facility, they are in large cages and well looked after, some are out on perches, and some can be flown with a handler I believe, well worth a visit.

Really good tour with a very knowledgeable guide. The birds were fantastic and getting to meet the owls, particularly the 2 day old tawny owls, was a brilliant experience!

The web site (which is equally acessible to you) says 11-5. There is also a phone number; I would take the precaution of calling to confirm a few days prior your visit.
