We currently house four Lanner Falcons. Both the males have been flown at the centre and at shows, two females were acquired in 2013. One of the males and a female have been paired up off public display for breeding; the second female has been paired up with a male Peregrine falcon, also for breeding. The final male, Spec, is on public display and is being trained for flying displays.
