What Can I Expect

Falconry in Leicestershire - get up close to cute little owls and fly beady-eyed eagles! This centre is situated on a farm near to Market Harborough, which is south of Leicester city centre and in the farming heartland of a county with a long tradition of hunting and country sports.

Opting for the half day or full day falconry experience at this Leicestershire venue will see you spending time with Andrew as your host. To put it simply, Andrew loves being a falconer. It's hard work and long hours, but after you've spent weeks or even months training a raptor and you then watch them fly free for the first time with such grace and finesse, it is a magical moment and ultimately very rewarding, as you will learn for yourself in just a few hours with Andrew.

You will get to meet a variety of birds, from eagles (just check out the size of their claws!), to the nimble falcons, as well as the falconer's four footed friends Boris and Walt the gun dogs. You will also be shown the classic falconry techniques to get the raptors flying straight onto your gloved hand. In fact, you can expect to be getting so close to these birds that you'll be able to see their feathers ruffle in the breeze and, if you dare, look them right in the eye

And those on the full day course get to spend the afternoon out and about with the birds, typically flying an Eagle or Eagle Owl in the summer months and out hunting with the Harris Hawks assisted by the ferrets and dogs in the winter.

Andrew also offers an Owl Encounter session, where you'll spend three hours meeting, learning about and flying a variety of species of Owl.

Whichever course you pick, you're sure to learn an awful lot about falconry at Leicestershire's friendliest centre near Market Harborough. See, hear and learn all about things such as breeding, hatching, rearing, feeding and developing the unique relationship between handler and bird. Andrew is a superb host and is very skilled with and enthusiastic about each and every feathered friend he trains and flies.

Andrew provided a great experience and displayed his huge knowledge. It was a fun session and the pleasure of handling the birds was immense. I would recommend Andrew and his birds of prey experience to anyone.

What a great afternoon. Andrew is very knowledgeable and communicates his vast knowledge easily. It was so enjoyable, and restful. Set in some great countryside, the birds seem are very much in a splendid environment. If you want to see birds of prey in the hands of an expert, then take this experience.
