The International Centre for Birds of Prey is the oldest dedicated birds of prey centre in the world, but unless you are interested in birds of prey – why visit?

Well I can almost guarantee that you will enjoy it. We humans are surrounded by birds in our daily lives, but so often don’t notice them, a visit here gives you the opportunity to see one group of birds up close, with in many cases no wire, and watch them fly amazingly close to you.



Babies and more babies


2014 is an exciting year for us with the breeding season. We have CCTV camera's on some of the birds which means not only can we see exactly what is happening, but so can you! Our breeding season starts early, usually the December of the year before and the first to lay e generally the vultures. Then some of the eagles, owls come next or with just after the vultures and the falcons and hawks are usually later on.

We have two new incubators, so we have three different types now which means we have more opportunities to move eggs around if they are not doing what we need them to do. We have a new brooder which means you should be able to see chicks more easily when we are hand rearing, and we are building a new incubation/brooder facility, to be poshly called the Avian Propagation Centre! The birds bred in 2013 are now flying well and have joined the team properly, we are really pleased with their progress, it is always exciting to see the birds that you have bred come into work!   So watchout on our Facebook page to see this years Babies as they arrive.

What happened at ICBP 2014

Bill Bailey Open the New Hospital

A huge thank you to Bill Bailey for opening the new hospital as well as all the visitors and guests who came to see Bill Bailey open it. It was a great event and the launch of what has been a very needed part of the International Centre for Birds of Prey. The new hospital is to help care for the many injured and sick wild birds of prey that we receive every year. The funding was thanks to Forest of Dean Local Action Group (LAG) as well as money raised by the ICBP form many kind and helpful donations.
