Don’t miss the Woodlands Falconry Centre which is one of the best in the UK. The Falconry Centre is located in Woodlands Family Theme Park. The indoor aviaries and outdoor flying ground are superb. They are designed not only to show off these handsome birds but to give them the most comfortable and natural conditions as possible. The Zoo inspectors said the weatherings are some of the best they have seen in the country. Woodlands Falconry Centre is home to a large selection of magnificent birds of prey. From the small little owl Peppa to Malachite the Indian Tawny Eagle.
The breathtaking aerial displays show off the magnificent collection of Eagles, Owls, Hawks and Falconry Birds. Our Indian Tawny Eagle has a giant wingspan and look out for his great talons which are designed to snatch heavy prey. Our highly experienced Falconers Gail and Lynn have a unique knowledge of the art of Falconry and the habits of Raptors around the world. They will happily discuss the birds hunting skills, what they eat, the history of Falconry and all the questions you have ever wanted to ask about the wonderful world of Birds of Prey.
