Getting that close to birds of prey is an magical experience

Everything was relaxed but excellently organised, very friendly and ifnormative, and very easy easy for visitors without ever losing sight of the well-being of the birds.

Excellent way to spend an afternoon. Lovely to be able to get so close to the birds and to be able to handle them. Sian was very informative and friendly.

Don't know as my Father still hasn't had chance to attend!

I bought this for my Father's birthday and everytime he has tried to book an appointment they have either failed to have any sessions available or have double booked. his birthday was in September and the first available session is proposed in the New Year!
