Product Details
Falconry techniques have been refined over centuries and passed down from many falconers. This half-day course gives you the opportunity to share in this knowledge and to interact with these magnificent birds of prey up close before learning how to fly them to the fist. These birds are not trained to do tricks they simply mimic what comes naturally to them. All the birds on show will display their natural instincts to soar, quarter, pounce and mantle.

Agenda
Your experience starts with an informative tour of the centre where you will see the variety of birds of prey close up and learn all about their different characteristics, speed capabilities and hunting habits. After that, you will have the chance to fly some of them to the fist under the watchful eye of the trainer. Finally, there will be plenty of photo opportunities to capture a truly unforgettable experience. All equipment will be provided for your experience, but it is advisable to bring a pair of wellington boots with you and wear suitable outdoor clothing for the time of year. You will be at the venue for approximately 2 to 3 hours in total.
