With the maximum raptor-gazing group size being just six, you will enjoy privileged access to the birds, making this a fun day out that all the family will enjoy.

Experiences start with a guided tour of this large falconry venue in the heart of the West Midlands. The centre is open permanently to the public, but you'll have the delight of being accompanied by an expert handler who'll be only too pleased to answer your questions about these beautiful creatures. You then head out to the arena area, where you'll actually be taught how to fly at least five different and very gorgeous raptors such as Harris Hawks, Buzzards, Kestrels, Little Owls, Eagle Owls and Striated Caracara birds.

Sessions offer incredible opportunities for those new to falconry and the West Midlands team works tirelessly to show you the very best that these regal raptors can do. It's a testament to their passion for their beloved birds of prey that these experiences are so informative and thrilling and we're sure that anyone with an interest in wild birds will love this winged adventure.
