I have been to falconry days for a few experiences which include hunting days, a 3 day training course on how to be a falconer and a falconry experience day. All of which were amazing experiences, The birds they have are beautiful and very well behaved and are treated very nicely. The guides for these days were very friendly and extremely informative. There website is also extremely useful and informative.
On the falconry experience day we got to handle the birds and fly them in a field which was spectacular, the birds or prey which were used performed really well, considering we were complete strangers to them. We also learned about various birds of prey and got to see the centers very impressive range of birds.
On the falconry training course which too place over 3 days I learned about how to take care of the birds, this included various skills such as feeding, housing and training the birds. We were taken out on a walk through a forest to see how the birds interacted with the environment and learned about the various equipment used. We were also taken out on a hunting day which was brilliant.
The third experience I did with falconry days was a hunting day (please not this wasn't part of the training course and was a separate experience I did with falconry days) During this day we took out hawks and ferrets to the country side and went hunting for rabbits. The hawks and ferrets made a great team and we caught many rabbits with expert guidance from the staff at the center. The Rabbits were also killer quickly and humanly by the staff.
Overall I would say these were amazing experiences and I would definitely go again. You also get a better experience than you would at The Keilder birds of prey center. The only reason I have not given this a 5 star rating is that is it quite expensive although I know that buying and keeping the birds in tip top condition can be an expensive process. Would I recommend Falconry days to someone else......Definitely :D
