Little and Large Falconry Experience in Bedfordshire
For budding falconers, this is hard to beat - meet some of the smallest and biggest birds of prey on the planet with this fun-filled experience in Bedfordshire. Start off with coffee and discuss the itinerary with a resident falconer, then meet the birds. Start by handling and flying some of the falconry centre's smallest raptors including kestrels and different owls including Barn Owls, Woodford Owls, Mottled Owls, tiny Scops Owls and more. During the second part of your time, become familiar with the centre's big hitters. Handle and fly American Bald Eagles, White Tailed Sea Eagles, African Fish Eagles, Blue Chilean Eagles and Steppe Eagles among others.
