The Ultimate Bird of Prey Encounter

 

A very popular and fully interactive falconry experience which allows you to explore the sport of falconry by flying a variety of our Birds to the gloved hand as well as learning important falconry techniques like tying the "Falconers knot" and how to pick up a Bird of Prey from it's perch and put it safely down again. 

 

Within the 3 hour experience, you will have the opportunity to handle and feed our Birds on your glove aswell as flying a variety of our "Raptors" including Owls, Buzzards and Kestrels. All of this is topped off by going out on one of our "Hawk Walks" where we take a Harris Hawk or two out into the fields and surrounding woods. You wil have the rare opportunity to watch our stunning Hawks in action (maybe catching quarry if there's any about) and to call them from the trees to the gloved hand. If that's not enough you may get the chance to watch the Falconer fly one of his regal Falcons to the lure.

 

A truly unforgettable experience that is perfect for anyone who has a passion for Birds of Prey and the art of falconry.

Spectator Vouchers

 

Spectator vouchers are for those who would like to accompany the participant on their experience. This is a great way of getting close to the action without handling and flying the birds yourself. You can take photographs or video of the participant throughout the session,"It’s like having your own private flying demonstration when you spectate".

 

*** PLEASE NOTE ***

Spectator places can only be purchased and used in conjunction with a valid participants voucher. Spectator's must be 14 years or older.

What To Wear

 

Comfy footwear is a must! We’ve seen our fair share of flip flops, heels and sandals of all descriptions during our experience days, which – although very nice to look at -tend to look a little “rugged” (feet included) by the end of your time with us! Best to stick with walking boots in the summer months and most definitely walking boots or wellies during the winter months when everything becomes a little wet and muddy. Sensible outdoor clothing is advised so please come armed for the English weather and bring layers / waterproofs if necessary. We’ll provide the tea and biscuits!

Terms and Conditions

 

We can cater for a maximum of 6 experience day guests within your group, althogh we do try and keep this to 4 to ensure you get the best experience possible. All of our vouchers can be purchased online and will be sent out to the customer as soon as payment is received.

 

Our experience day vouchers are non-refundable and there is an age limit of 14 years old for any person that will actually be flying the birds of prey. Children under 14 years old must be accompanied by an full paying adult.

 

*** PLEASE NOTE *** Once payment has been received, a voucher pack will be sent by post to the shipping address given on your order. Any experiences purchased through our "special offer's" will be supplied as e-vouchers. Recipients must then call 01772 323145 to book a date and time to have their experience with us, these can be made for any day of the week, Monday through to Sunday.

 

There is no diary system on this website so If you have a specific date in mind and it’s essential that you do your experience day on a particular date, please call or email us to check the date is available BEFORE you purchase the voucher online. We cannot issue refunds and we can get booked up on weekends and during the summer months so it is best to confirm the date prior to purchasing the voucher to avoid disappointment.

We will do everything we can to go ahead with all of our bookings and will let you know by phone or email if we do need to cancel – this may be on the actual day of the experience due to our very British and unpredictable weather! If you are in any doubt as to whether your experience day is going ahead, you can call us on 01772 323145 and we can give you confirmation on the day. In the event of a cancellation, we will re-book you onto the next available date. All of our vouchers are valid for 1 year from the date of issue and should be used within this time period.
