Arden Falconry Experiences and Courses

 

Half Day Falconry Experience


   Our most popular course.  This is a half day course lasting approximately three hours and gives an opportunity for people to gain hands on experience with Birds of Prey along with getting lots of information about them, their conservation and much, much more.

   This morning course starts at 10:30am throughout the year.  As with all our courses it is weather dependent as the majority of the course is spent outside with the Birds.

   We begin the experience with a session in our Falconry workshop.  This takes about 60 minutes and covers the different types of birds of prey, their conservation, and their habits and habitats.  We give a brief tutorial on Falconry history and have a quick look at the equipment fitted to birds of prey in captivity and how to handle birds of prey.

   The rest of the course duration is spent outside with our Birds.  After an introduction to the birds at the centre we begin to fly our birds in the flying arena.  We go through the initial training (manning) and progress on to flying our birds on a training line (creance) and finish off the session when participants fly their birds free in our display arena.

Cost £75.00 adult - £55.00 children (13-16 years)
