We bring along a varied selection of birds of prey to your event. We provide a static display of between 6-9 birds, so people can see them up close and ask the falconer any questions about the birds, and then can perform 2 x 30 minutes or 1 x 45 minute flying displays during the day.
The team will consist of a varied selection of our birds and may include birds such as Harris Hawks, Owls, Falcons and at least one of our Eagles. The flying display consists of Hawks and Owls flying at very close quarters to people and falcons flying at speeds of over 40mph. A commentary is given by the Falconer throughout the display. The birds are used to travelling and attending displays as we attend many events throughout the year.
Along with our static display we will also bring along a selection of bird of prey souvenirs and mementos for event visitors to purchase from us.
The Falconry Centre holds a current Zoo Licence and therefore we have Full Public Liability Insurance. All our birds are legally captive bred. We also have current Animal Transportation Licences.
The displays are entertaining and informative and our birds are flown to the highest standards. Please Contact Us for your exact requirements and availability of dates.
What we will need:
For the static display we provide our own netting to protect the birds and gazebos to shelter them if necessary. We prefer a quieter area of the showground to sit the birds while resting and preferably with one solid back (trees or hedgerow) and preferably under trees for shade and shelter. We also need to be able to have the vehicle by the side of the static display area. The approximate area needed for a static display is 20 feet by 40 feet.
For the flying display, you will need an arena that is cordoned off (we usually use the arena where you have other events taking place). Use of PA system, preferably with headset microphone, or at least a wireless microphone. (We do have a small portable system ourselves which is suitable for smaller crowds). When completing a booking form once a date is confirmed with us you will be asked if you are able to provide gazebo and PA system - this is so that we know whether we need to bring anything with us.
