ALL ABOUT THIS EXPERIENCE

Half Day Bird of Prey Experience - Devon

Attention Devon nature lovers! This experience gives you the opportunity to handle and fly a range of Falcons, Kestrels and Owls during one unforgettable half day!

This half day falconry experience is a fascinating introduction to the world of Falconry, and a superb way to really get up close, personal, and hands-on with a range of stunning and mysterious birds of prey. If these majestic creatures interest you or someone you know, this may just be the perfect experience gift!


This bird of prey experience begins at the Devon centre with an introduction to the practice of falconry, the centre, and of course the many birds of prey who call it home. After you've had a good look at the centre and the birds, you'll be provided with some protective wear and briefed on how to handle the birds - then it's time to get hands-on! You'll spend the next portion of your falconry experience actually handling and flying a selection of the centre's incredible inhabitants. Your falconer guides are incredibly knowledgeable and are happy to answer any questions you have, so make sure you ask if there's anything you want to know...as there surely will be! The experience lasts for two and a half hours, with a morning and an afternoon slot available to choose from - and depending on which you choose, you can come early or stay late to watch the birds flying.

This is a thorough and totally fascinating introduction to falconry and birds of prey, in a beautiful centre in Devon - so if you know anyone who might like to learn about these fabulous feathered friends, this may just be their perfect experience gift!
