Always wanted to have a Hawk on your wrist and see it fly?
This half day session gives you the opportunity to fly a range of birds of prey, including hawks, owls and falcons
In a small group (limited to 6) you’ll be taken through safe and ethical handling of birds and moves on to flying sessions and a final Hawk Hike walk following and flying the birds around the environment.
