Ben Owen’s Falconry Experiences




For anyone interested in Birds of prey and the skills of falconry then this is the experience for you.  We have a wide selection of birds of prey and a knowledgeable falconer on hand to give you all the information you need.  If you are thinking of a career in the above subjects or just wish to experience the up close and personal touch with a bird of prey then read on…



Take a walk on the wild side in a beautiful location on the outskirts of the park.  You will take control of one of the most magnificent birds of prey, the Harris Hawk.  Under supervision from our falconer you will man, fly and feed this superb hunter.  Any questions you may have will be answered during this experience.  Make sure you bring your camera.

For the falconry enthusiast this is our most popular and rewarding package culminating with a Certificate of Introduction to Birds of Prey.  You will work closely for the day with our falconer as he carries out the duties required for our resident birds of prey and owls, manning,   bird husbandry, handling, checking equipment and flying the birds.  Your falconer will give detailed explanations of what you are doing and why and will of course answer any questions you may have.  Advice will also be offered, should you get smitten with birds of prey, on how you can further your interest by attending other courses that we run for people who wish to improve their falconry skills and get the best results from their birds.
