We all enjoyed our Owl Encounter Experience and appreciated the warm welcome from all the Falconry Team as well as the knowledge shared and the opportunity to meet and fly some of the owls. Wonderful to see a variety of raptors, to hear some of their histories and to learn about their care and training. Highly recommend a visit if... More

We originally were booked into a different place (Cumberland Bird of Prey Center-Don't go there, they are not truthful with information) and when that fell through we went here. They could not have been more helpful with customer service and information. We were able to get booked in quickly and at a good price. They provided a wonderful and informative... More

I had the pleasure of meeting three owls from Falconry Days at a short indoor demonstration on New Years eve at the Roxburghe Hotel near Kelso. The handler was superbly dressed and was able to introduce everyone to the birds whilst providing information about these animals in an informative and entertaining fashion. Having these fantastic birds sit upon your hand,... More

Falconry days is a wonderful place for a family or friends day out for all ages. Our family ranged from 13 to 83 in age and all said it was a fantastic experience. We chose option 3 as a taster day and we will definitely return and have a longer time with these fantastic birds. Mark and Mandy are really... More

We have been on a half day experience and then had the fabulous birds at our wedding. We had the rings delivered then a display for the guests after the ceremony. It was brilliant and Derek did a great job entertaining the guests, everyone had a great time! It was lovely to have pictures with our favourite owl Chester. I... More

We called in on a wet day out on our way to Otterburn. The staff were very welcoming and extremely knowledgable. Even the rain didn't spoil our enjoyment of flying the birds and our private tour was made all the better with hot tea and coffee and some wonderful cheese toasties. (although I don't think this is part of the... More

We spent a great afternoon at the center and thoroughly enjoyed every minute. We were lucky enough to have Mandy showing us around as her knowledge and obvious love of all the birds shone through in her talk. Later she flew "Mr Spock " the European Eagle Owl for us which was a fantastic experience. We were two couples and... More

My husband and I got a private tour by a pleasant, knowledgeable, young staff person. Our experience was very educational and the highlight of the visit was when her bird, Twitter, flew over and over again to our arm. This off the beaten path experience was well worth the travel. Be sure to follow Falconry Day's signs and not your... More
