Ever wondered what it’s like to be a falconer? Get an insight into the beautiful world of falconry with our special hands-on workshop facilitated by the experienced Sky Bird of Prey team. Enjoy spending time and flying different birds of prey in the beautiful countryside around Betteshanger.
After meeting your professional falconer, you’ll get straight in and hands on with our wonderful birds. Your falconer will give you a detailed insight into every bird’s physical features, hunting skills and natural behaviours, as well as teaching you the basic handling skills you will be using throughout the session.
Once your initial insight has concluded, it’s gloves on and time for you to take charge of these magnificent birds. You’ll be taken into the Park where you’ll have the chance to see what they are truly capable of. You’ll experience the hawks flying majestically, following you from tree to tree, as well as the seeing the owls fly silently through the air. You’ll be calling them to the glove to feed.
The small group size means you get plenty of one to one time with the instructors and the birds.
£40 per person. Participants must be aged 8 or over. Children under the age of 16 must be accompanied by an adult at all times.
