ATTRACTIONS TO KEEP THE WHOLE FAMILY ENTERTAINED.
The Falconry School
Most people have seen bird-of-prey demonstration, but ours are somewhat different. Firstly, as the name implies, we use a team mostly comprising experienced falcons. These are the most exciting of all the raptor families and the most dashing of the falcons is the peregrine, which is rarely seen in public displays. This is officially the world’s fastest living creature, which can attain speeds of well over 200 mph in a “stoop” or dive.
We have numbers of falcons, including peregrines, and by the use of both ancient falconry methods and modern devices and techniques we endeavour to show the glorious flying abilities of the falcon.
In addition, there is an educational side to the display, which entertaining information about individual birds, on the history of he sport and uses for falconry in modern times. The display are also interactive, with adult audience volunteers being allowed to handle and parade the falcons, and children flying others from hand to hand within the arena in perfect safety. We will also have a static display of hawks and falcons, and our personnel will be on hand to answer questions throughout the day.
