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 Owl Encounters Barn.
