ARE YOU LOOKING FOR THAT REALLY SPECIAL EXPERIENCE FOR YOUR FRIENDS AND FAMILY?
WHY NOT PURCHASE A VOUCHER FOR ANY OF OUR OWL AND BIRD OF PREY ACTIVITIES BELOW
Our birds are all housed in aviaries or free-lofting spaces, and are never tethered to blocks or bow perches. They are trained using positive reinforcement with minimum stress, being encouraged to come to the gloved hand through bonding and trust, without force. We aim to allow them to still be wild birds exhibiting their individual natural behaviour, whilst flying willingly to the public and their handler.
All our pre-booked activities are private sessions in the mornings during which we are closed to the day visiting public.
If you wish to stay for the afternoon display you will be offered a discounted price of £7.50 per person.
Our Bird of Prey Activities are available every day of the week, but there will be no 'Afternoon with the Birds' on a Monday or Friday, except Bank Holidays.
Our birds are amazing flyers - they love it. In their training we have taken what they show us and enhanced this behaviour, to create some incredibe flights. As the birds experiment more with their skills, they increase their self confidence, and then show us even more. Training these birds is a privilege, exciting, and inspirational. We would love to share this experience with you.
We invite you to meet our birds, to enjoy their flights, and to fly them yourself! Our birds fly really close to you, some sit on your tables, others swoop over your head, or run around on the floor - each bird has its own personality and way of going, and they all fly to your gloved hand during our experiences.
As far as possible we like our Activity Clients to have the place to themselves, and so we are now offering our above experiences away from the Day Visitors. All the birds you will fly will be during the morning or early evening, and the Afternoon with the Birds Display will be open to the general public. Maximum for any one Experience purchased through us is usually four participants, although larger groups can be catered for.
If you would like to bring along members of your family to watch, take photos, or simply relax and enjoy without flying, there is a Spectator fee payable as noted on the individual activity details. This includes the same refreshments as the Activity Client - we endeavour to make everyone's day a special experience.
