Your morning starts at 9:45am when you will meet your Falconer for the day. Over coffee you will be able to discuss the day and meet the other members in your group. This will be followed by a short tour of our Centre to see the many different species of birds in our Collection. This will give you the chance to not only ask questions but to also tell us if you have any personal favourites. It is the ideal opportunity to acquire knowledge about the birds without formality. Thereafter the morning will be spent handling various types of Owls. This will include some of our indigenous species, ie the Little Owl, Barn Owl, Long Eared Owl, Short Eared Owl,and Tawny Owl, together with Owls from around the World. You will have the opportunity to fly the birds yourself under careful supervision. You will also handle and fly a Harris hawk and the Chilean Eagle. The morning ends at 1pm. However, you are always welcome to stay on in the Centre during the afternoon. There is provision for you to have one spectator with you at an additional charge of £20.00. They will enjoy watching you handle and fly the birds and can take this opportunity to take pictures of your experience
We do recommend comfortable clothing and suitable footwear. Accommodation is available and details can be given upon request.
