Enjoy a great family day out with a fascinating falconry experience.
- Knutsford (Cheshire)
- Price for 5 Participants
This Cheshire falconry experience is for the whole family. Spend
a fun and fascinating morning or afternoon learning - in a very
hands-on way - just how powerful and impressive these regal raptors
During the Cheshire falconry experience the family will meet several different species of raptor, Kestrels, Owls and Hawks. The falconer will explain the habits of each species and how they are trained (or hoodwinked) to hunt. You will get a chance to don the falconry gloves and handle the beautiful creatures yourselves, and will enjoy a 'hawk walk', where the family will walk through the grounds of the falconry, accompanied by Harris Hawks!
This is a unique experience for the family as you will be able to all be involved in holding and flying several different birds of prey. You will be shown how to hold each of the birds with ease, fly them so them come back to your fist and at the very end of your fabulous day, you will get the chance to go on a hawk walk - this is where` you will explore the grounds with the hawks, with each family member (if they fell comfortable) is given a hawk to carry out or bring back. The hawks will fly in a group and follow you all through the fields. Once you experience is over, this by no means the end of your day as there is afternoon flying demonstration session in which anyone can join and much much more!
Available all year round.
