We are a fully licensed bird of prey centre and exotic animal breeding facility that only opens its doors to our visitors centre on just six days a year. We operate Experience Days on all other dates throughout the year in which you can handle and fly our birds of prey, meet and feed our mammals and learn a bit more about what we do here. Ran as a non for profit organisation, we rely on our hard working volunteers and fund raising efforts to enable us to care for these majestic birds of prey as well as treat and rehabilitate wild birds of prey and rescue and rehome unwanted and neglected animals from birds, to exotic mammals and reptiles. We are passionate about educating people about birds of prey and the challenges they face in the wild. We strongly believe children are the future and a child who grows up loving nature and wanting to save it will be an adult that takes action.
Our Experience Days operate all year round
We are open to the public for private bookings and experience days all year round.
Experiences must be pre booked by emailing email@example.com or calling 07557 785621.
All of our experiences are fun, educational and very hands on. From Owl Experiences
and Falconry Days to Hawk Walks and Bird of Prey Encounters,
we have something for everyone to enjoy!
Experience vouchers can also be purchased as gifts which are valid for 12 months.
Visit our 'Experiences and Gift Vouchers' section to find our more.

As of 1st Arpil 2019, all Animal Activities must be licensed which includes animal encounters, village fetes and fairs, bird of prey displays, educational talks for schools and childrens groups, animal therapy visits to hospitals and care homes, childrens parties, etc.
If there is an animal involved then the company requires this new license which has replaced the previous Performing Animals License. This is to ensure higher welfare standards for the animals being used and greater public safety.
We are fully licensed for both Exhibiting Animals (80551) and Breeding (35243).
We are also fully insured.
If booking a company that uses animals in any way please ensure they are licensed as it is now a legal requirement. Anyone operating without this license will be doing so illegally and their Public Libility Insurance will aslo be void.

We only love what we understand.
We will understand only what we are taught.' Baba Dioum
