A falconry experience day is a wonderful way to get up close to some magnificent birds of prey and learn about the art of falconry.

Falconry Gift Experience

Falconry techniques have been refined over centuries and passed down through many generations of falconers. On a falconry course you can benefit from some of this knowledge with a tour of a falconry centre and the opportunity to see the birds close up.

You will learn about their different characteristics, speed capabilities and hunting habits. You will also be shown some of the skills essential in falconry such as tying a falconers knot, attaching a swivel and oiling the jesses.

Then you'll have the chance to fly some of them to the fist under the watchful eye of a trainer. After a safety briefing your session will include learning how to weigh, pick up and settle a bird on a perch. You will then be able to watch as a bird of prey soars through the sky and lands on your glove. This will be a memorable end to an exhilarating day.

All equipment will be provided although it is recommended that you take a pair of wellington boots with you and wear suitable outdoor clothing for the time of year. Don't forget to bring a camera because there will be plenty of fantastic photo opportunities.

There are falconry centres throughout the UK and many of them house a variety of birds such as eagles, owls, hawks and buzzards. On purchasing your gift experience you will be issued with a voucher which you can then redeem at the centre of your choice.
