About the experience

Experience the majestic birds of prey at Pontefract in West Yorkshire! During this exclusive opportunity, you'll meet an array of birds of prey at a centre near Leeds. Meet Kira, these magnificent creatures' owner, breeder, trainer, and handler. Her gentle manner and passion for falconry have allowed her to build an incredible bond with her raptors. Witnessing this connection is truly captivating. Kira has established quite a family of birds in Pontefract, including captive-bred birds of prey and rescued raptors that she nursed back to health. Her background in raptor rehabilitation in South Africa has prepared her to provide exceptional care for her birds. You'll have the chance to meet Libby, the African Spotted Eagle Owl; Bungle the Eagle Owl; Tilly, the lovable Barn Owl; Kobie, the bright-eyed Harris Hawk; and even Geoff the Hawk, one of Kira's rescue birds with a special story to tell. This falconry centre in West Yorkshire is open all year round, and Kira will be honoured to welcome you to her world of birds of prey near Pontefract. Each session is held exclusively for you, either as an individual or a small group of up to five, with your family or friends. You'll learn fascinating facts, hear incredible anecdotes, and actively participate in flying these stunning creatures to your hand.
