  • I didn't expect to enjoy as much as i did. It has been amazing to see buzzards close up, I've only ever seen them soaring above or having a rest/advantage point on lamp posts. Also held a little cutie Owl called Yogi. The owl handler was great with us and the children. I would come again for sure.
  • Amazing day out for all ages, shows put on by Malcolm and staff, you can hold the birds, you can walk round the averies to see all the birds, staff are very knowledgeable. such a great day out, you dont find places like this with free entry, would expect to pay £10 - £15 entry, deserves a donation to be left. Malcolm, s dedication to the birds is obvious, its a must visit place A*****
  • Really nice place for the kids to visit. The volunteers are amazing and are more than happy to stop and talk. Well worth a visit if you're already shopping or nearby!
  • Fantastic place to visit. Birds are absolutely in stunning condition. Wonderful staff looking after these birds just on charitable donations!!Total shame that funding isn't available for them to carry on their amazing work !!
  • Great place for everyone. Kids can find nice playground, parents- shopping centre and on the end you can find magic place with fantastic birds and fantastic people. Great chance to get photo with live owl, hawk or falcon.
