Description
You love birds but have never managed to get close enough to see how one works. But with this whole day with birds of prey, their mysteries will be revealed.

Orville, Big Bird, Ed the Duck. Emu. The bird world has not been best served by those of its breed that have found fame. No wonder they all look so grumpy all the time. Plus the worm eating thing. That can’t be much cop.

But if there’s one type of bird that deserves celebrity and recognition it’s the noble bird of prey. With their ability to swoop, hover and kill things, they are the bees knees in bird terms. Except they probably eat bees. And their knees.

The problem with birds of prey. They are always so far away. Hovering on the horizon or drifting silently on a motorway verge. When you start running towards then screaming and waving your arms, they fly away. And you get a little sad and have to sit in the car for a bit.

But now you can get up close and personal (not in an intimate sense) with these magnificent flying animal machines. At a variety of locations around the UK, you’ll have the opportunity to learn everything about birds of prey. Star signs, turn ons and turn offs, favourite Steven Segal film, that kind of thing.

And then, under the beady eye of the instructor, you’ll get to take charge of a particular bird of prey who will fly to your fist, probably as you hold a bit of meat. Yes, you can recreate you favourite scenes from 70s cult British drama Kes. Such as adopting a northern accent and having a brother who is a bit of a prat.

Bird it up big time with a whole day at a great UK bird of prey centre.
What happens on the day?
Your day at the bird place starts with an informative tour of the centre where you will meet the trainers and see the birds of prey close up. Not that close, that’s too close. There you go. Then you will learn all about their different characteristics, speed capabilities and dirty hunting habits. This full day experience offers you plenty of opportunity to fly some of them to the fist and ample time to take photographs and audio recordings of this truly unforgettable experience. All equipment will be provided for your experience, but it is advisable to bring a pair of wellington boots with you and wear suitable outdoor clothing for the time of year. Perhaps a jaunty cap? As a guide your experience will last for 6 to 7 hours.....
