Here's what people have had to say about our Bird Handling Experiences!
"Thank you for an amazing half day falconry experience. The bird of prey you have at the centre are very interesting and I'm glad you look after them the way you do rather than let money come before the animals. I can definitely recommend doing the experience and visiting the centre." - Christina L.
