Falconry Experience Half Day

(Available from August to April)  Your own private Half Day session with our Bonelli's Eagle and Harris' Hawk.

Our Half Day Falconry Experiences are ideal for anyone interested in learning a little more about birds
of prey and want to spend more time in the field with a Hawk and Bonelli's Eagle.
Our half day experiences start at 10am with a short journey in our Landrover to our private grounds and finishes at 2pm.  Unlike our hawk walks which are relaxed and have a more casual approach you will cover more in-depth training methodology, biology, ecology, history, fitness techniques, development & behaviour and ethics of the falconry tradition.  They are designed for people that have a keen interest in falconry and the natural world and give an excellent introduction into being a falconer.  You also have the option to change your Half Day Hawk Experience into a hunting session.

After you receive your brief lesson in handling you will have your own Harris' Hawk & Eagle to fly.  You will witness our Harris’ hawk & Eagle swoop to your gloved hand time after time, flying free and following us through private woodlands and open countryside with plenty of photo opportunities.  You can also witness our birds fitness training with our remote control mechanical lure dragging machine.  Finally; feel their power and tenacity as they finish their meal feeding on your glove.   The emphasis of the Half Day Experience is very much on clients handling and flying the birds. 

Our Half Day Private Experiences are second to none!  You can be assured you won't be stood in a falconry centre with 10 other people.  This will be your own session; which gives you more handling and sufficient time to witness our birds behaving naturally in wild surroundings, giving our clients more of an individual and personal experience.  Which also makes for a unique and memorable gift. 

This is not an arena flying demonstration but rather an adventure through the countryside, appreciating life through the eyes of a bird of prey.
