Owl Encounter in Derbyshire
We really like this Football Experience near Risley, Derbyshire.
Owls are solitary but incredibly majestic birds of prey and this hands-on owl encounter based in Derbyshire offers the rare opportunity to see them up close and personal. Following a welcome introduction of the centre, head out into the open countryside and meet some of the centres most amazing owls. After a bit of training, handle owls from various parts of the world and experience the thrill of flying them to the glove under expert supervision. This experience is fun, insightful and an absolute must for any owl lover.
