Our meeting point is Ladd’s Garden Village, Reading, Berkshire. Feathers and Fur has a purpose-built centre within Ladd’s Garden Village where the birds are on show to the public. Here you meet the falconers and after human introductions, you are introduced to all our birds. We then have a quick safety talk and you are shown how to call and hold the birds correctly and are given a falconry glove to use for the duration of the session.
Then spend 2 hours in the company of our wonderful Birds of Prey, flying a range of Hawk and Owls to the fist, learning about each species, their natural environment and as individual characters. This 2 Hour Falconry Experience is based on 12 people however additional members can be added for a charge of £10 per person up to a maximum of 20 people. This session is suitable for a wide range of ages but we do allow handling the birds for anyone under the age of 6 years. The 2 Hour Falconry Experiences take place 6 days a week, however, these sessions are extremely popular and Feathers and Fur recommends booking several months in advance if you would like a weekend or a school holiday slot.
