Birds Of Prey Centre – Bedfordshire

Our friends took their granddaughter Eliana to The Birds of Prey Centre and had such a good time there that we will also take our munchkins there.

The centre looks after more than 200 birds of prey. You can see a wide variety of different types of owls, hawks, eagles, falcons, hawks, kites. The centre also has vultures which we hadn’t realised were also birds of prey. They have just moved from their original home in Shuttleworth and are now fully open.

During your visit, you can watch birds being flown by the falconers. There are three displays which last for for about 30 minutes and are included in your entrance fee.

Each display is different and after the 11.30 am and 1.30 pm flying displays you are able to handle the owls. There is a third display at 3 pm.
