We really like this Experience near Hatton, Warwickshire.
Enter the exciting and fascinating world of falconry with this bird of prey day in Warwickshire. Based in Hatton Country World, meet and get hands-on with these statuesque, powerful and graceful birds and learn all about the work that goes into training and taking care of them. With the guidance of an expert falconer, explore some of the more advanced techniques of bird handling on this comprehensive full day experience. Expect to meet hawks, falcons and owls on the day. Whilst owls are not considered true falconry birds, they tend to be a very popular species to fly or handle. Learn about weight management, feeding the birds and record keeping, before heading out to the Warwickshire countryside and seeing the birds in action first-hand – a truly enjoyable day.
