There are over 30 species including the Snowy Owl, Asian Brown Wood Owl, American Kestrel, Saker Falcon, Golden Eagle, Bald Eagle, Griffon Vulture and Raven to name a few.

The Visitor Centre exists in a peaceful and secluded site which is surrounded by beautiful mature trees, nestled beside Webb's (of Hagley) Garden Centre. Access to the Falconry Centre is via the Garden Centre main entrance and there is ample parking available in Webb's car park.

As well as adding many more birds, there have been many improvements to the centre in recent years. We have rebuilt all of the aviaries to make them larger. There are concrete pathways throughout the Visitor Centre making it fully accessible for pushchairs and wheelchairs, and a large seating area adjacent to the flying arena with picnic benches and other seating. The centre features landscaped gardens and an established wildlife and fish pond. We are constantly maintaining and developing new features to enhance your visit to our centre.
