You'll spend a full day at the centre, finding out all about the birds and getting time to experience falconry first-hand. Tour the centre, where you'll get up close to different species and learn what makes a hawk a hawk, a falcon a falcon and an owl an owl. Get expert tuition and take time to handle the birds so that you get comfortable with one another. Then try it yourself and fly a bird over open countryside, watching them show off their skills and getting some thrills medieval-style when a top predator comes into land on your glove. Lunch and refreshments are included.
