This bird of prey taster is a great way to get introduced and familiarised with some of Britain's top predators. Taking place in Essex, Derbyshire, Herefordshire or Suffolk, begin by being introduced to the various birds of prey on-site. Depending on location, get up close and personal with different species of hawks, owls or falcons. Each venue includes the thrill of flying a bird first-hand to the glove, to see the true might and the speed of these beautiful creatures. A great taster experience of the art and skill of falconry.
Seven days a week (excluding Christmas) in Herefordshire and approximately one weekend date a month in Derbyshire.
Minimum age varies from 7 to 13 (depending on venue), under 16's must be accompanied by a participating adult. Due to the amount of walking involved, reasonable level of fitness is required. Unfortunately wheelchair users cannot be accommodated.
Please call the venue for a weather check before setting out. If the experience is cancelled because of bad weather it will be re-booked for an alternative date.
