Eagle Handling Day in Yorkshire
Kick off with a cup of tea and a bacon roll at the hotel before a guided tour of the barn - a great way to see all the resident eagles and learn about the different birds and species. Receive expert tuition on bird handling techniques and learn about bird training methods. After a light sandwich lunch at the hotel, head out into the Yorkshire Dales with your instructor and fly three different species of eagle to the glove. These elegant, beautiful creatures are a privilege to witness in flight and the memory of this experience is likely to stay with you always.
