This experience is ideal as a gift for anyone who wants to get up close to birds of prey and we also recommend it as a 'taster' step into Bird of Prey ownership.

A maximum of 4 participants on the session ensures you plenty of interaction with our a birds.

During your time with us you will learn about the history of falconry, handle up to 4 different birds, you will fly two of these yourself to the glove and meet all of the Hawkwise birds in our private garden.
Spectators are welcome and are encouraged to take photographs of your day.



Advanced Hawk Handling

A follow on session which is all about flying a bird free and can be taken on its own as a half day session or combined with the Basic Hawk Handling for a full days experience.
You will cover weighing the bird, tracking the bird using telemetry and flying a bird free.
The free flight is done with one of our Harris Hawk and is all about encouraging the hawk to follow you as walk around the Country Park and flying it to your fist from the trees.

Spectators are welcome and are encouraged to take photographs of your day.
