Please note that following an outbreak of avian flu in mainland Europe, measures imposed by the Chief Veterinary Officer mean that we cannot fly our birds of prey, until further notice. This affects the Sky Hunters daily bird of prey display and Hawk Walks and the Owls By Moonlight evening event on Dec 10th is postponed. However, the wild heron feed will continue daily at 3pm. We apologise for any inconvenience caused and thank you for your understanding.
