If you are ever anywhere near Knutsford in Cheshire then don't miss the chance to see the best falconry centre in the country.It is run by Graham Bassant who'm I have known for many years since one of his falcons was lost in Cheshire then found by police on a public tip off in a flat in Newport ,Gwent.I was in on the rescue of his bird on request that I joined them to retrieve the falcon.Ever since we have remained very good friends.
Back to the falconry centre where you can see White Tailed Eagle,Fish Eagle,Tawny Eagle,Bald Eagle and Marshall Eagle.You can also see the very beaytiful Red kite,Black Kite,European Eagle Owl,Bengal Eagle Owl,Barred Owl,Tawny Owl,Barn Owl,Long Eared Owl,Short Eared Owl and Little Owls.Then there arethe falcons Pereguin ,Lanner,Saker ,Gyr. STOP STOP STOP !!!!!!!!! I think you really get the picture now,there are so many birds of prey to be seen here which are not all listed here,there are many more to be seen,some you will see in excellent flying displays where Graham will talk through with you all about each bird that is being flown in his displays.
If after you have seen these flying displays and you would really like to have an introductory to falconry then why not book yourself on a course with Graham and learn about every aspect of this wonderful experience so that you can take up falconry yourself. So if here in or near Knutsford on a day out or on holiday don't miss this fabulous day out at Gauntlet Falconry Centre in Knutsford. Tel No 01565 754419
