We have daily displays with at least 9 different birds in each of our displays. (weather permitting).
We have one of the largest collections of flying birds in the North here at the Centre which enables us to fly an amazing variety of birds in each of our displays. We normally fly a selection of owls, vultures, eagles and kites in every display. Ranging from the 16lbs Stellers Sea Eagle to the 2oz African Pygmy Falcon and with a few more unusual birds included as well, keep an eye out for the cheeky kookaburra, naughty caracaras and the graceful White Storks.
You can also expect to get very close to our birds as they swoop over your head whilst our passionate and knowledgeable display team provide light-hearted and informative commentaries.
In-between displays you can view our very impressive collection of birds in their rest areas. You may also see more birds flying in either a training session or on one of our very popular experience days. With block paved paths the access is great, picnics benches available to enjoy snacks from our well-stocked gift shop or bring your own picnic, we also offer hot and cold drinks.
We also run pre-booked Experience Days most days which you will be able to view from the public areas.
We are happy for photos to be taken of our birds including during the flying displays.
