Falconry Birds for Beginners

Trying to find an enjoyable, yet educational falconry birds course for beginners? Here at The Willows Bird of Prey Centre, we have expert knowledge and understand to ensure the very best experience available for amateurs. We are open on a daily basis, including weekends, meaning that everyone has the opportunity to take part in our events. Due to our high interest, we recommend that you call us before booking to guarantee a suitable time and date for your visit.


We start our falconry birds for beginners with a junior course designed for those between the ages of 8-15, where they will take part in a 2-hour session with two experienced handlers. However, the favoured option is the introduction package, designed to increase your general education and understanding, in addition to taking part in practical activities. During this course, we will start with a talk on the history of falcons and the birds that you will be handling, as well as information on how we care, manage and handle the birds.


In order for us to do this, we have appropriately equipped facilities available, enabling us to carry out a first-class falconry birds experience for beginners. Within our area, we have a 6-acre field used for our nature trail, which is also the location for many of our spectating elements and special events. As it’s an entertaining experience, we love to get everyone involved. This is why we allow participants to bring two guests with them for a small fee, where they will be able to follow with the group through the nature trail to watch the birds.


We know to guarantee a great day out, it’s not just down to the activities and events. Within our centre, we also have a cafe on site, where we have homemade cakes and hot drinks available to ensure that you remain refreshed throughout the day. For those who are looking for a bigger meal, we do also prepare and provide fresh breakfast, lunch and dinners, with children’s menus also available.
