Junior Owl Experience
Junior Owl Experience
£35 per person for 30 minutes (Includes One Accompanying Adult Spectator)
AGE 4 - 14
One for the children! This session is specifically designed for juniors aged 4 to 14 years to get hands-on flying an owl and have fun!
Our Junior Owl Experience utilises the most calm and tolerant birds of prey in our collection to give children a fantastic encounter as they fly an owl for the first time. There are several species of owl in our collection at the falconry centre, including the largest species in the world, the European eagle owl. We like to start our participants with something a bit smaller, for example a barn owl, which will fly to and from the gloved hands of the children.
There is something quite magical about witnessing the delight on the face of a child when they interact with any animal but particularly with something as enigmatic as an owl. In common with all of our falconry experiences participants may find themselves part of a small group. As the predicted duration for this session is 30 minutes, with most groups numbering more than a couple of participants, we tend to allocate slightly longer to give as much hands-on and flying time for the children as possible.
When the flying is over we return to the aviary complex and weathering lawn where the rest of our trained birds are located. Here we like to introduce our guests to one of the ‘big boys’ of the collection, like the aforementioned eagle owl, and when their mood allows we will often let the children have a go at holding one on their glove.
The good news for parents, guardians and relatives is that this session includes a single spectator place for a supervising adult. You might not get hands-on with the birds but there will be plenty of opportunities for you to record the session through video and photographs. Additional spectator places can be purchased for £5 each when used in conjunction with a valid participants voucher.
As with all our outdoor experiences we ask that clients wear suitable clothing for all weather conditions, which should include flat shoes. We will provide all the appropriate safety equipment where necessary.
