This is a unique and amazing opportunity to see 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. In poor weather this activity takes place in the Barn.
We offer owl encounter sessions on a daily basis with our experienced staff which are extremely popular and can be requested during your visit. During very busy periods we may not be able to accommodate owl encounters 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. Participants must 11 years old or over. The encounter can be shared by two people.
