Owl Close Encounters
This is a unique and amazing opportunity to meet and touch a number of our hand-tame owls and learn about their characteristics.
These owls have been hand reared for educational purposes and range from some of the smallest species in the world to among the largest.
There is always a member of staff on hand to answer any questions and tell you lots of fascinating facts. The hand tame area is accessible throughout the day except when there is a flying display going on. In poor weather this activity takes place in the Owl Encounters Barn.
Owl Handling Sessions
We are also offering one to one handling sessions on a daily basis with our experienced staff which have proved to be extremely popular and these can be requested during your visit. During very busy periods may not be able to accommodate owl handling sessions that are not booked in advance. If you would like to be assured of a session during your visit, please call us on 01726 860182 to book a place.

Alongside our public flying displays we are now able to offer falconry courses and handling days at very competitive rates.
The falconry experiences need to be pre-booked in advance and please allow at least 4 weeks notice to avoid disappointment as they are on a one to one with our falconer.
