New Falconry Centre

Hawks & Squawks is an exciting new falconry centre opening on Saturday 9th October 2021. Come along and meet 22 birds from around the world.

Owen Pibworth is our resident expert. He's been training birds of prey since his teenage years. Having started his falconry career with a female Harris Hawk, his varied collection now boasts male and female hawks, goshawks, falcons, kestrels, eagles and owls, all housed in brand-new purpose-built aviaries here on the farm.

Visitors can enjoy a falconry display six days a week at 1pm, with an additional morning show at weekends and during school holidays at 11.30am.

Although there will be no falconry display on Tuesdays, visitors to the farm are welcome to look around the aviaries seven days a week from 10am to 5pm. 

Entrance to Hawks & Squawks falconry centre and the flying displays are included in the usual cost of entry to the farm park and woodlands. Private experiences are available to pre-book at an additional cost, detailed below.

There are no displays on Tuesdays. All displays and experiences are weather permitting. 

Flying displays

Our 30-minute flying displays take place six days a week at 1pm, with an additional morning show at weekends and during school holidays* at 11.30am. (There are no displays on Tuesdays.)

Join us at Hawks & Squawks as a selection of three to four birds of prey showcase their talents. Learn some fun facts about these impressive birds and take a seat as birds of prey fly over your head, reaching speeds of up to 200 miles per hour. If you're lucky, you might find a bird takes a shine to you and decides to land on your shoulder! 

For safety reasons, once the show has started, we ask you not to leave your seat. Please also be aware that our birds are fed on chicks produced especially for birds of prey, which some visitors may not wish to see. 

Displays are weather permitting.
