Falconry is sometimes known as the sport of kings.
Happily, you won’t need blue blood and a crown to enjoy this Big Deal on a three hour falconry experience from 001 Adventure.
Perfect for bird lovers, this experience would also make for a great family day out or an unforgettable, not to mention unexpected, present.
Wide range of birds
Your experience will take place at Luggiebank in Cumbernauld in the largest bird of prey centre open to the public in Scotland.
The centre has a great range of birds including eagles, vultures, hawks, falcons, owls, kites and some other unusual species of birds such as parrots and a rhea.
Over the course of three and a half hours, you will learn how these birds operate in the wild from the centre’s expert handlers.
Not only will you learn about their behaviour, you will also get a chance to handle the animals, before being treated to an awesome professional display.
Naturally, there will also be plenty of opportunities to grab some snapshots of you and your new feathered friends.
This offer will be available on selected weekends throughout the year.
This bird centre has brilliant reviews on TripAdvisor. This is a shortened version of an extensive and very enthusiastic report from one bird lover:
‘Brilliant afternoon… The display was a real joy with incredibly close up action with these beautiful creatures… The experience itself was a group session with several people handling a beautiful Russian Steppe Eagle which was great for me as I got many wonderful close-up shots of the beautiful bird… got to fly a Tawny Owl which was fun and such a pleasant experience… The staff made sure everyone got plenty of time handling the birds and when our time was up they put on another display with three different birds… had a fantastic day and would highly recommend it to anyone.’
If you have ever marvelled at a bird of prey soaring across the sky then this Big Deal is a fantastic way to get up close to these magnificent creatures.
