Hawk and Owls Experience

With our Falconry experience, you will be able to get up close with the hawks and owls as well as have them fly to you.  
Falconry handling experience
We have a varied selection of birds of prey from around the world with new birds on the way.

Younger spectators are welcome under close supervision from an adult for their safety as birds of prey are not tame domesticated animals even if they are trained to fly to the glove for reward.

Plenty of photo opportunities throughout your visit.

Falconry training day

The day starts at 10:30am where we will get to know each other over a cup of  tea or coffee, then it's hands-on learning.
At around 13:00 we break off for lunch (provided), Tim is ever present so that you can chat about the morning’s experiences.
Among the subjects that the course will deal with is how to choose the right bird, how to fit all its equipment, the housing needed for it, diet, how to tell if your bird is off-colour or sick, the initial training of the bird, flying the bird up to the stage of “off the creance”, and telemetry.
The afternoon session consists of Tim showing you how to call a selection of our birds to the fist.
We will have some fun learning how to swing a lure It takes months of practice before you can try this yourself, the last thing you want to do is to hit the bird with the lure. Then we will have a photo session, The day ends at 16:00 with another cup of tea or coffee and the chance to discuss the afternoon.
Feel free to ask questions at any point through-out the day.

If you need to travel why not combine the day with a stay in one of our Gypsy wagons. 

Wear good footwear and clothing.
