The Hawk Conservancy Trust is a conservation charity and award winning visitor centre that operates in the fields of conservation, education, rehabilitation and research of birds of prey. Set in 22 acres of woodland and wildflower meadow, there are over 150 birds of prey on view, from the tiny Pygmy Owl to the impressive Steller's Sea Eagles! Many of these birds are involved in the spectacular daily flying demonstrations, whilst others are part of important breeding or environmental enrichment projects. Every visitor can hold a British bird of prey and there are extra activities during weekends and school holidays for the younger visitors.

Entering the conservation area we... More

The Hawk Conservancy caters for more than just Hawks, although there are plenty of them to see. But in addition there are many varieties of other types of birds and animals that will interest children of all ages. During your visit you will see the hunting birds, hawks, owls and buzzards showing off their skills taking the lure at such... More
