Discover more about birds of prey and experience shadowing a falconer for a day.
At Coda Falconry in Essex, you will get the opportunity to work alongside a member of staff and help out with various activities including cleaning the aviaries, preparing the food and weighing the ‘Raptor Flying Team’ ready for their public aerial display later in the day.
During your experience, you will learn how to tie the falconers knot, how to correctly pick up and put down a bird of prey safely on a perch, as well as general bird husbandry and welfare.
You will also be involved in the public flying demonstrations, where you will use your newfound knowledge that you have gained throughout the day to help the falconers prepare and fly some of the outstanding 'Raptor Flying Team' before a public audience.
A certificate will be presented to you at the end of your experience as a memento of your incredible day.
