Take a rare glimpse into the wonderful world of falconry with this one hour taster session based in the peaceful Suffolk countryside. Handle and fly a resident owl and a falcon from the specialised bird of prey centre to the glove, under expert guidance of a trained falconer. Learn lots of insightful facts about these magnificent birds, including hunting habits and details of their favoured natural habitats. This falconry experience is both fun and practical, and the birds enjoy showing off their considerable skills in front of an audience. So make the most of this rare opportunity to witness the majestic predators in action, amongst the splendour of the Brett Valley’s rural surroundings.
