Raptor Award Courses

15/02/18 –

Are you searching for Raptor Award courses in the Kent area? The Willows Bird of Prey Centre are birds of prey specialists, that provides a wide range of fun packed experiences and falconry courses, for individuals, schools and birds of prey enthusiasts. The days out we offer all take place at our centre in Knockholt, that’s situated in the beautiful Kent countryside.


We are highly passionate about our birds of prey, and at the Willows Bird of Prey Centre, we like to spread that passion. When you attend one of our bird experience days, you will have the chance to fly a wide variety of birds, in a safe and surrounded countryside.


One of our most popular experience days is the Beginner Falconry Course, that is the ideal course for people who are new to falconry. This course will be spread over a four-day period, and will allow you time to gain an insight into the world of birds of prey, as well as their species, care, management and handling. The Beginner Falconry Course is also great for falconers to extend their skills and receive a recognised award.


On completion of one of the Raptor Award courses you will be given the Raptor Award, that is nationally recognised. The award is divided into two units, and is designed to educate you how to keep birds of prey in safe and healthy conditions. To find out more about the Beginner Falconry Course we provide, you can visit the Raptor Award Courses page.


With our Beginner Falconry Course you will also be entitled to explore our six-acre nature trail, as this is included in the experience. The nature trail is a woodland setting that’s full of wildlife and birds, that includes goats, chickens, wallabies, rabbits, raccoons and more.
