Head to Durham Falconry, based in 450 acres of farm and woodland just outside of Durham City, for an incredibly exciting and interesting half day animal keeper experience. This half day will give you the unique opportunity to get up close with some beautiful hawks, falcons and owls, under the supervision of a highly experienced keeper, with over 35 years of experience and teaching behind them. They will pass on their knowledge and tips for flying and caring for birds of prey, as you take a walk through the countryside on a hawk walk, allowing you the opportunity to fly a Harris Hawk and Barn owl, watching them take off and land on your gloved hand. Your keeper experience will be finished off with either a training and flying session with an additional bird species or a pretend hunt. Don’t forget your camera as this is the perfect opportunity to snap some great shots and capture memories from the day!
