Half Day Experience

A half day experience lasts from around 13:30 until 16:30 (13:00 to 16:00 late autumn). After a small amount of tuition in the handling of raptors, participants head in to a field, where they can experience the thrill of their first Hawk (and usually Owl as well) flying to them and landing gently on their outstretched glove. Then they will take part in flying some falcons, traditionally the birds of kings and nobility, and the fastest creature that has ever lived on this planet.

Some falcons will be flown to lures suspended on kites or balloons (even drones sometimes) many hundreds of feet in the air. Unforgettable experience.

Full Day Experience

Starting at 10am the session includes handling practice with various birds of prey, so the participants can feel the power of the live hawk as it balances on the fist. In our seminar room we give some background information to the art of falconry. This includes the types of hawks used, a little history of the sport (which is one of the worlds oldest pastimes - at least 3000 years old) and some interesting DVD's etc.

After lunch participants head in to a field, where they can experience the thrill of their first Hawk (and usually Owl as well) flying to them and landing gently on their outstretched glove. Then they will take part in flying some falcons, traditionally the birds of kings and nobility, and the fastest creature that has ever lived on this planet.

Some falcons will be flown to lures suspended on kites or balloons (even drones sometimes) many hundreds of feet in the air. Unforgettable experience.

      I would thoroughly recommend it not only for the magnificent birds but also the entertainment value
      given by the very knowledgeable and enthusiastic John and Patrick."

    • "What an amazing day! I bought this experience as a gift for my 11 year old son who loves birds of prey. He flew lots of different types of birds & got to hand feed an owl. The demonstrations were fantastic & the handlers were so knowledgeable & got everyone involved. Would highly recommend it!"
