The Deal

Budding ornithologists can fill up their photo albums or, more likely, instagram pages during an hour spent camera-snapping birds in flight and static. There'll be a variety of native and non-native birds to photograph, including buzzards, great grey and eagle owls, and a harris hawk. For the motion shots, the birds will be flown in a mesh-less environment so as not to obscure the pictures, and for the static shots they'll be set up in a private area. Bird-watchers should bring their own equipment, and will be part of a group.

Choose from the following options for a one-hour bird photography experience:

  • £14 for one person (60% Off)
  • £26 for two people (63% Off)
  • £49 for four people (65% Off)

Lovely little place

Well worth a visit, more animals than I was expecting all with their own rescue sorry. Lovely play area and cafe. Saxon the Wolf hybrid was our favourite and the fact the kids got to stroke him made their day. Attached to a nice garden centre aswell.
