Meet the different species at Hatton Country World
Go out to the flying arena and see the birds in action
Birds of prey are fascinating and powerful creatures, and this introduction to falconry in Warwickshire is a great way for bird lovers to learn more about their care and conservation. Begin with a falconry workshop which covers all the different types of birds of prey, their habits and habitats and conservation work. Learn about falconry history, how to handle the birds and what equipment birds in captivity are fitted with. Expect to meet hawks, falcons and owls. Whilst owls are not considered true falconry birds, they are a popular species to fly or handle. The rest of the session is spent out in the flying arena, learning how to fly the birds freely through the beautiful surrounding scenery.
