- Gift Voucher valid for 1 Participant
For the ultimate experience in falconry and bird of prey flying, this full day in Newcastle is a cut above the rest. Perfect for animal lovers and those who enjoy spending time in the great outdoors, falconry experiences make uniquely wonderful experience gifts.
The experience begins on arrival at the falconry centre where you'll greet the instructor and the rest of the participants in the group, before heading over to the aviary to meet the birds of prey. Throughout the day you'll learn everything there is to know about falconry from an expert handler, and have plenty of opportunities to ask questions and increase your knowledge. The centre has a variety of beautiful birds from Harris Hawks to Barn Owls, and you'll be taught skills involved with handling such mighty creatures so you can truly appreciate how powerful yet gentle they are. In no time at all you'll be comfortable with them landing on your arm, and feeling their strong talons grip as they take flight again. Watching their enormous wings unfold as they fly away from your clenched fist is quite the sight to behold!
Falconry experiences are ideal days out for enjoying some fresh air and learning about these majestic animals, and make great experience gifts that can be enjoyed by all.
