My wife booked an Eagle Encounter for me as a birthday gift. I called the Falconry Centre and asked if I could take my young daughter (2.5 yrs) along as she is obsessed with anything furred or feathered. I spoke with Nanette who told me this would be fine. From the moment we arrived we were really well looked after. Nanette suggested tailoring the morning to give my daughter as much involvement as possible and promptly produced a little glove for my daughter to use. We were shown a great variety of birds including hawks, falcons, eagles and owls and were briefed on each one. Then, onto the hands on falconry! This consisted of being up close to various birds on the glove including a Little Owl, Barn Owl, Eagle Owl called Dennis who likes to be snuggled, male & female Harris Hawks, Russian Eagle and finally a magnificent Golden Eagle. Nannette is clearly a very experienced and knowledgable falconer - all of the birds were in fantastic condition, the centre is well maintained and you are made so very welcome from the moment you arrive. I have been to other centres but this experience really did top all of the others, so much so that it has cemented my desire to learn more about the ancient art of falconry. Thanks for a perfect experience!
