What's included

  • Set in 42 acres of woodland, Rutland Falconry & Owl Centre is home to more than 130 birds of prey including owls, hawks, falcons, eagles and vultures. The centre also shares its space with Rutland Wildlife Sanctuary, home to some of the world's rarest cats, Amur leopards.
  • To start off, you are given the chance to sit with your bird for a while during a short talk on your chosen species. Then you will receive a demonstration on how to carry the bird on your fist, and once you are comfortable with it, you will walk with the bird on your fist around the 42-acre centre.
  • A trained falconer will provide an in-depth history of falconry before you get treated to a display of one of the beautiful birds in flight.
  • This deal is available seven days a week, until 10 March, 2013.

Wonderful birds, enthusiastic staff. Not too commercialised.

Wear walking shoes.

14 April 2014 Judith United Kingdom

Knowledge of staff, plus their sensitivity to the birds.

I believe that the bird of prey experience is indeed very good. It is a shame that the facilities are a little bit 'old' but I suspect this is down to funding. I believe that they do a brilliant job and I would recommend this to anyone with or without and I interest in birds.

11 April 2014 Diane United Kingdom

Being able to handle the birds.

It is a wonderful activity and really informative. It is great for young children and adults alike.

The interaction between the birds and the handler.
