This is a taster experience that will give you a fascinating insight into working with these marvellous creatures whilst learning some interesting facts about the birds that you will handle.
Hawk Flying Experience
The Hawk Flying Experience is run by ‘Owl Adventures’. Owl Adventures was started in 2011 by Head Falconer Ryan Stocks. Ryan’s passion for working with these majestic creatures started when he worked in a bird of prey centre.
“It has always been a privilege for me to do something that I loves, and there is nothing more satisfying than combining my two great interests, birds of prey and entertaining people.”
At the core of the business is the welfare of the birds. Owl Adventures exists as a business by always putting the bird at the forefront of the business. Great steps are made to ensure that every bird is cared for and maintained in the best possible way. It is always the bird first, then business second. This is reflected in the passion and enthusiasm that many of the employees and volunteers have when working with and on behalf of Owl Adventures and is evident on any of the bird experiences.
The Bird of Prey Flying Experience takes place in the Museum Gardens in York city centre.
The Hawk Flying Experience lasts 30 minutes.

For many small businesses where you have to do literally everything, to have Uniquely Local market our experience has been fundamental to the success. Thank you. "
