Fabulous Charlie the head man friendly engaging knowledgeable and the birds AMAZING.Didnt think you would get so close to some of them. So many different owls and they all looked pristine.

Highlight the demonstrations when the birds flew and how .Then there are the gorgeous little burrowing owls .Cannot recommend more highly .
Excellent Bird of Prey Centre. Went for the Raptor Fair 2020 and even though a lot of other events were getting cancelled these guys moved heaven and earth to, not only get this show on but also, make it fantastic. The flying displays were excellent, the star of the show for us was Natalie's little Merlin however I was very impressed with the showmanship of the NCBP staff on the mic.
