Full Day Experience
Our full day package is for true bird and conservation lovers. It has slightly more information on husbandry and dietary needs. It will also give you more birds to handle and fly with. We meet at the Ty Newyedd Country Hotel for refreshments before we head onto the farm.
Once the we head out onto 250 acres where we will fly the Harris Hawks, they are a pack hunter so we become part of the pack and interact with the birds by flushing and working with them to give them as much stimulation as possible. There will be plenty of handling and flights to the glove with images possible. The walk can take up to 1 hour 30 minutes but can be catered to suit all needs and fitness. Good clothing will be needed as we may end up in some wetter woodland depending on where the birds fly.
The experience then takes us to the church where you will fly up to two owls. During this time you will have plenty of flights to the glove and gain a great understanding of owl behaviour. We will showcase silent flight and signals that owls show when in a environment that suits their adaptations.
We then head for your light lunch at the Hotel.
After lunch we go back to the limestone edges of the Moel Penderyn where we will take the falcon and eagle out for some long high and fast flights. During the walk our falcons average up to 20 miles during their flying duration. They also mingle with the other birds of prey at times were we often see Kite and Buzzards. The flight is recorded to give you a full understanding of how each species uses their adaptations to gain height a speed. You will be shown how the lure brings the falcon back to us and the possibility of a dummy bunny lure to eagle to its prey. This is a very fun and insightful day to the work and training to get the birds to high standards.
You can take as many photographs as you wish on the day and Lewis can also use your camera to take images of the birds when on the fist.
Due to the nature of the activity the weather plays a massive role in if we are able to go ahead on the day. All bookings are re scheduled if they are not possible due to the weather. Also all PPE shall be provided on the day.
