We visited this morning as soon as it opened and we were the only visitors for quite some time. It was excellent the children got to hold lots of birds, met some tiny ducklings and baby birds of prey and flew some of the birds. The staff were excellent with the children, very friendly and you could tell that they really loved looking after the birds.
It's the best opportunity to see birds of prey that we've ever been to and will definitely be returning.
Thanks for a great day out!

I would highly recommend Turbary Woods, a great opportunity to see some magnificent birds. The staff are extremely friendly and helpful and it’s clear to see they have a real passion for what they do. The display was great and there is plenty of time given for everyone to feed the birds and take part, something the kids loved.
