Knowledgeable and friendly staff. Had two hours flying about six different birds on a 1-1 basis then had the rest of the time to see the other birds on site and watch a display.

I really enjoyed this experience, it's a bit like taking your dog for a walk... except you are bringing a Harris Hawk! A real insight into falconry at Eagle Heights in Kent.

Great experience
11 July 2017
Small group of 5 people, we all experienced hands-on with 5 birds. We all flew Harris' Hawks with 3 birds in action at once. All the way through we were given great background information on all of the birds. I would definitely recommend this experience for anyone who has an interest in birds. Once you're experience is complete you are able to look around the park and watch any displays.
