Overview

Birds of Prey Experiences - By appointment only. Up close personal encounters with amazing birds of prey that will delight and amaze and I guarantee they will have a great time. My customer comments say it all. Sorry we are not a centre where you can turn up at any time for a look around. Our experiences are pre-booked. My birds of prey days give lots of handling and up close experiences. I have small groups of up to six participants (20-30 are not uncommon elsewhere). We concentrate on being with the birds - handling, flying, feeding and finding out all those special fascinating facts. I like lots of questions and delve into my 45 years of falconry experience to answer them. I have a great location here in the countryside, marvelous birds and a generous welcome. This is a Birds of Prey Experience That Won't Disappoint - This is A Gift As Special As You Are!

Brilliant afternoon! This was a birthday gift for my husband and to be honest I didn't think me and my little boy (5 years old) would enjoy spectating! With that in mind I came armed with the iPad thinking we'd be camped in the car...More

The best ever birthday present for my wife! An excellent location for flying the falcons, and very well organised. Small groups, so plenty of opportunities to have the different sized birds land and take off from your arm.
