We’d like to thank all of those who supported us over the years with our travelling displays by booking us or coming to watch! It’s been an incredible journey and we are excited to welcome you to the next chapter!
After opening The British Bird of Prey Centre in 2018 we’ve dedicated ourselves to creating unique and exciting displays for you in our permanent home! The birds are enjoying flying daily in the National Botanic Garden of Wales and their skills are growing by the day!
Flying Displays at 11.30am & 2.30pm
We hold two different displays daily at The British Bird of Prey Centre. These contain a mixture of hawks, owls, eagles, falcons, buzzards and kites.
Combining education and fun you’ll be amazed by our team’s flying skills but also learn more about their personalities.
Our aim is to try and get our birds to fly as they would in the wild. So we encourage them to use their natural skills to show you their very best techniques. So hopefully you’ll see our kites eating on the wing, our kestrels hovering and our White-tailed eagle soaring above you.
Working with animals means that every day is new, so you can come back time and time again and the show will always be different.
Owl Flying at 1.00pm
Owls are some of natures most well adapted creatures. As well as being stunning to look at, they have developed lots of special skills to help them be at their best. During our owl flying session at The British Bird of Prey Centre you’ll get close to four of our native beauties. Learn about their camouflage, amazing listening skills and how their feathers are the envy of engineers and designers around the world. Using owl pellets we can even work out what they had for dinner!
Conservation Talk at 3.30pm
Some of our British birds of prey have had a hard time recently. During these talks one of our team will take you through the projects that are taking place in the UK and what The British Bird of Prey Centre is doing to help.
Learn about how the longest running conservation programme in the UK has brought Wales’ National Bird of Prey, the Red Kite, back from the brink of extinction. Marvel at the size of Britain’s largest Eagle, the White-tailed Sea Eagle, and understand how we can live in harmony with these beautiful creatures, to make sure we never again lose them as part of our native population like we did in the past.
There are lots of opportunities to ask questions in these informal talks delivered daily.
