Learn how to handle birds of prey, and take the chance to walk and fly them; the two-day course includes a certificate
What You'll Get
Visitors will have the opportunity to handle, fly and learn about various birds of prey from experienced falconers over the course of one or two days. Those on the one-day Eagle Experience will start with a smaller bird to learn some handling skills and go for a walk around the centre. This will lead to flying them and building up to the likes of Golden, Amercian Bald and African Fish eagles. Meanwhile, participants on the two-day Falconry Course, will have the chance to learn about the handling of different bird species, training stages, equipment making, housing and feeding, and related areas of health and law. This is followed by free-flying of species including owls and eagles before going on a hawk walk to see them at work in the countryside. The course also includes completion certificate, a pack of notes to take home and a notebook and pen, as well as the chance to watch a display.
Choose from the following options:
£36 for a full-day eagle experience
£92 for a two-day Falconry course
