Daily bird of prey flying displays

A visit to the Hawk Conservancy Trust is an inspiring and uplifting day out for all ages. During the summer, we have three world-class, spectacular flying demonstrations daily, where up to 20 of our impressive birds fly in our serene surroundings, all included in your entrance price. Each display takes place in a different arena with a different team of birds. You can expect to get very close to our birds as they swoop over your head whilst our passionate and knowledgeable team will provide a light-hearted and informative commentary.

Wings of Africa

Summer Timetable – 11:30am

Step into the Savannah to see our awesome African birds fly. Watch White Storks fly elegantly alongside vultures and kites and see our Verreaux’s Eagle-Owl and African Fish-Eagle too. Experience the dramatic impact of a bushfire and African rainstorm. A display inspired by the conservation work we do in Africa with vultures, which both entertains and infects you with our passion for these fantastic, yet vital creatures. We will also demonstrate the magnificent hunting skills of the Secretary Bird, as you watch him annihilate a rubber snake! One of our Secretary Birds has been part of some important research to look at the strength, speed and force of a Secretary Bird’s kick. This research could be applied by scientists looking at prosthetics.
