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.

I enjoyed all of the experience, all the information before and after was very interested, and the person in charge and the other people were very polite and had a vast amount of knowledge regarding all the different birds.

as it was a very hot day and spending1 hr getting there and 2hrs in woodland it would have been nice to be able to get refreshment's, but this did not spoil our experience.

Chris who was gudiing us through the Birds of Prey experience was very knowledgeable, informative and passionate about what they were doing there at the centre. The birds were just fantastic and Ii felt privelaged to be so close to these wonderful creatures.

They are doing a fantastic job at the centre. it is very hard to try to keep a balance with looking after these majestic birds and letting people invade their space and territory. Keep up the good work Chirs and team.

Getting up close and personal with 'Bandit' the owl

Staff very knowledgeable and informative. It was great to be able to get so close to an owl and spend so much time with it. Lovely walk through the woods and then rounded off with flying a hawk and a barn owl. A thoroughly enjoyable experience.
