A nice Birds of Prey Experience available in Billericay, Essex.
Learn the art of falconry on a lush green farm in Essex with this introduction to bird of prey falconry. After a tour of the bird of prey centre, get close to different types of birds and learn what makes each one different to the next. An experienced handler will then tutor in how to handle the birds before giving you a bird to take care of and get yourself comfortable with. After all that, get ready for the main event, trying falconry. Go a bit medieval – with flying a bird to the fist, have it land on your glove and wonder at it’s impressive skills. This experience will leave you with a new found respect for Britain’s top predators.
