Was a fascinating up close and personal experience with various raptors usually only seen from far away! Well worth a visit if you are in the area.

My husband is a zoologist by training and as a child he wanted to be a falconer. This was an amazing experience for him. We were lucky( and out of season) we were the only visitors today. The host encouraged us to put on a glove and allowed the hawks and owls to land on our fists. The birds were... More

On impulse we decided to attend the Radical Raptors show when we visited The Heath farm stall. I am so glad we did, it was absolutely amazing. Mr. Bones (a vulture) had us in stitches and is really funny. We've learned so much and had so much fun. Dennis was great and answered all our questions while educating us about... More

What a lovely experience. We all see owls and raptors in the wild but to experience an owl actually sitting on your hand is quite something. I felt like Harry Potter for a few minutes. The owner of the sanctuary and his wife are very passionate about what they do and it is lovely to support this "good cause". A... More

We have been to Radical Raptors three times now and had a great show on every occasion. We have seen something new every time. Our two small children are treated to an informative show about predatory birds where they get to interact with them. Their favorites are the owls and Mr. Bones the vulture. Radical Raptors is part of The... More

A group of us visited on a very cloudy day that turned into a torrential downpour and unfortunately our tour had to be cut short after only experiencing 3 of the raptors on our gloved hands. But up until then, it was quite special.

We love birds, so what a treat to visit this center and attend one of the educational flight displays! We even got to put on a leather glove to feed one of the owls (which oddly came and sat on my head, which is apparently very unusual) : - ) What we loved most about this was to witness the... More

What a pleasant surprise! I was dragged kicking and screaming by my wife who insisted on going and I finished up having one of the best educational and entertaining hours ever. The birds are amazing, but look out for the bad tempered vulture he/she is as mean as ugly but loads of fun.

We all really enjoyed the whole experience at Radical Raptors. It's obvious that the presenter was really passionate about the birds and their rehabilitation. Excellent interactive show. Everybody is given a glove and Barney will fly and sit on your hand. On leaving, my son wanted to adopt one of the birds. Would definitely recommend it.
