Our Exclusive One Day Bird Handling Experience means that it is "Exclusive" to your group and your group only, on the day's session with us. We have accommodated birthday parties, driving instructors, photography groups, company corporate days out and even a stag day! Generally the day follows the format for the one day experience, but as it just your group we will try and cater for any of your requirements.
This Experience gives people the chance to handle and fly a number of different species of birds of prey at the centre. After tea/coffee participants will be given a guided tour of the centre where they will see a large variety of species from the Kestrel to the large and impressive Cape Vulture, they will also be encouraged to ask the falconer any questions about the birds. They will then fly at least 5 birds in the arena at the centre, as we swap the birds around flown on the Experiences we cannot say which birds exactly you will fly but it tends to be a Kestrel, Buzzard, Harris Hawk, Caracara and different species of owls. After lunch they will be taken out into the local woodlands where they will be able to fly and watch a hawk in its natural habitat. This experience is totally different to the morning, where the birds do the minimum for their food! The day culminates back at the centre where they will get the chance to fly at least one of our larger birds: an Eagle or a Vulture.
The day commences at 10.15am with tea/coffee and biscuits and finishes after 4pm. Tea/coffee provided throughout the day and a snack lunch is included in the cost. No age restrictions as this a private group
The group size can be up to 6 people, but can be smaller if you wish.
