Birds As Hunters

The 1 hour session  will include bird handling and flying.

This session involves a demonstration and discussion of the birds hunting technique, and looks at how birds of prey are adapted to their lifestyle; eyesight, feather design, beaks and talons etc.

Groups will be able to see the birds flying and compare them with different wild birds. The development of  falconry as a sport and way of life will also form part of the session.
