Overview

This is a fascinating introduction to an ancient and intriguing pursuit. See for yourself an extraordinary relationship between man and bird of prey. Falconry was originally introduced as a means of obtaining "food for the table". In Medieval Britain birds of prey were often present at grand occasions such as pageants, weddings and jousting tournaments. Even today seeing these magnificent birds up close is a very special experience and one which you won't forget.

Based at Byrkley Park Garden Centre, Hawksflight Falconry's informative and educational experiences are centred on conservation. Their aim is to educate all ages into the beauty and magnificence of these raptors and Owls with a hands on and practical approach through a variety of illustrated talks and experiences.

Hawksflight's friendly and knowledgeable staff welcome you to the centre and their passion for the Birds of Prey and Owls is evident as they guide you through the secret world of the silent hunters, the predators of the air!

Upon arrival you will be welcomed at the reception where you will booked in. You will then be introduced to the friendly and informative guide and be given an overview of what to expect from the experience, the history of the grounds and then more importantly be introduced to the magnificent birds of prey.

You will then learn about the Birds of Prey and Owls which they have at the centre and how they are looked after. You will cover topics such as husbandry, housing, diet and food preparation, weight control, training, falconry equipment and telemetry. You will also be shown how to tie the falconers knot and handle the birds safely.
