With nearly a Hundred birds on site there is always something that needs training so you will assist the Falconer with either an Owl or Hawks early stage flying lessons.We stop for Refreshments about 11 am (Hot and Cold drinks are provided). You will experience the thrill of taking a Harris Hawk on a walk along the woodland paths, watching it follow from tree to tree then swooping in to land on your Gloved hand. We like to finish the morning with a flight from one of the Worlds largest Owls, the European Eagle Owl, with a wingspan of over 4 feet its sure to get the pulse racing!
We say goodbye to the half Day Guests at 1 pm then after the dinner break you get to assist in the training of a Falcon. These are the speed merchants with some Falcons able to reach speeds of 200 mph.
