Admission plus Meet the Burrowers VIP Experience Special Offer

Enjoy a wonderful day out at the Hawk Conservancy Trust whilst getting to know our Burrowing Owls even better with our Admission & Meet the Burrowers VIP Encounter special offer!

With your admission ticket, join us for a full day out of family fun and fascination. Be sure to arrive early and watch our daily world-class flying displays, get involved with our activities and trails, and see over 130 birds of prey around our 22 acre woodland and wildflower meadow grounds.

On your Meet the Burrowers VIP Encounter, we’ll invite you into the ‘burrow’ where our team of owls will fly, hover, walk and run around you. These cute and curious owls will delight as they show off their unusual burrowing behaviour, diving in and out of their tunnels. You’ll get a great view as they land and hop between you, they may even use you as a perch!

Did you know?
Many owls can see in almost complete darkness. Their eyes have many more rods and far fewer cones than human eyes. Rods are sensitive to low levels of light while cones deal more with colour and clarity at high light levels.
