Birds of Prey

Birds of prey are fascinating. So intelligent, and once trained, capable of putting on an impressive show. Of course, these are captive birds. In the wild these are much harder to find, and photograph.

These images are from 2 separate centres. Both work to inform and raise awareness of these birds in the wild.

The Havenstreet Falconry, on the Isle of Wight, has a variety of birds from around the world. The British Bird of Prey centre, based at the National Botanic Gardens, Wales, has British birds. Both offer displays twice a day, weather permitting. You can also view the birds in between displays. Each centre can offer individual experiences, but you should contact them in advance.
