FLYING TIMES

We fly the birds every day; up to forty can be flown daily in the summer months when the new birds are joining the team. Most of the demonstrations are outdoors in the flying grounds, giving an excellent chance for photography. However in poor weather we fly indoors with teams of birds that will happily manage inside, so whatever the weather you will see birds fly on your visit. We hold two to three flying demonstrations daily- there is a different team for each demo, so why not come for all of them? We change the times in the winter because of daylight saving. If you are concerned about the times, just give us a ring. They are pretty weather dependent.

*Winter and summer flying times change with the clocks as during winter time it would be too dark for the demonstration to start at 4.15pm so the day the clocks change, so do the flying times!

During the day you may see training sessions in between official flying times. You are welcome to watch, but try to keep still and quiet to help the young birds in training. If there is a special bird or species you want to see, phone to see if and when it might be on flying demonstration work.

It's here at the flying demonstration that some of our visitors (particularly those who visit regularly and so know the birds) get the most stunning photos, so don't be shy - have a go!
