|Our Gift Vouchers are valid for 12 months and can be completed on any day throughout the year, subject to weather and availability. When booking weekends please note that during July and August there can be a 2-3 week waiting period, so book early for that special day.
Your day starts at 9:45 when you will meet the Falconer for the morning. Over coffee you will be able to discuss the experience and meet the other members in your group. This will be followed by a short tour of our Centre giving you the chance to see many different species of birds and will include a walk through our own Owl Wood and also to visit the free flying barn owls in their aviary.
Thereafter the morning will be spent handling various types of Owls. This will include some indigenous species, ie the Little Owl, Barn Owl, Long Eared Owl, Short Eared Owl, Tawny Owl and the Snowy Owl, together with Owls from around the World. You will have the opportunity to fly the birds yourself under careful supervision.
There will be ample opportunity for you to take photos, so please remember to bring your camera. Our Falconers will be more than happy to assist you in any way they can. We do recommend comfortable clothing and suitable footwear.
As these sessions are very much behind the scenes, groups are limited and any spectator wishing to be with you on your experience will be charged £20.00 and are limited to one person.
