Our most popular experience by far! A unique day with birds of prey in which participants get hands-on and fly a variety of different species throughout the morning session and spend the afternoon flying hawks in the Cheshire Countryside, A day to be remembered forever!
This is a wonderful hands-on experience for anyone with a love of the great outdoors! Put on the gauntlet and fly a range of species of birds of prey such as Species of Hawks, Owls, Buzzards, Eagles and more! Our birds of prey have been raised by our professional falconers to such an expert degree that they really enjoy their interactions with humans. This becomes apparent as they fly to your glove and we make sure that every species flown is different as is there behavior as you will see! We will also let you know a little about the natural lives of each bird as it flies to you. You’re sure to be fascinated!
There will be a break at lunchtime to allow you to get something to eat. You can either choose to bring a picnic or there is the Village Restaurant on Blakemere which offers a range of hot or cold meals to buy.
The afternoon session of our Falconry Experience compliments the morning session as we take you out into the Cheshire Countryside to experience nature at its most highly evolved. Escorted by a hawk that is able to fly free from your glove you will witness the natural hunting prowess of these birds as they demonstrate their speed and agility. Of course, we also like to give participants as much hand-on time as possible too You take on the role of the falconer as it is called back to your glove to reinforce the bond between bird and man.
