These sessions are designed to give you a more personal experience and to get up close to these amazing birds and provide a truly unforgettable experience.

Walks with Hawks passionate staff have a wealth of practical experience and have inexhaustible enthusiasm for Birds of Prey and Falconry. They will encourage visitors to have questions ready to ask them and you’ll be amazed how much information they can provide.

‘Walks with Hawks’ made a flying visit to our home earlier this year for a truly memorable activity for our residents, relatives and team. The residents ‘oohed and aahed’ over a handful of beautiful birds, including a barn owl, Burrowing Owl and Kestrel, as well as enjoying a hands-on experience where residents and the team were allowed to hold and pet the winged visitors. Read more here…
