Bird of Prey Falconry Experience for One at The Hawking Centre in Kent
This three hour falconry experience is ideal for any true bird of prey enthusiast. Kick off with a coffee, before heading across the estate with a skilled falconer to get acquainted with a range of birds. Begin by flying a small owl through a wooded area, followed by a wood owl or eagle owl through the estate's meadow. Next, advance to larger birds of prey, flying Maggie the vulture across the lawns, a resident hawk through open parkland and woodland and finally, the imperial Chilean eagle through hedged gardens. This is a fantastic way to get hands-on with a large selection of majestic birds of prey and be privy to a rare glimpse into their world.
