Eagle Handling Day in Cheshire
An eagle in flight is incredibly beautiful - but since eagles' natural habitats tend to be so remote, it's also very rare. Start off with a guided tour of the bird of prey centre and learn fascinating facts about the various eagles in residence. Gain an insight into how these powerful birds are trained and get professional one-to-one tuition on how to handle an eagle. After lunch, head out into the country with a qualified instructor and fly an eagle to the glove - watch these magnificent creatures in full flight and witness their majesty first-hand.
