Fabulous Charlie the head man friendly engaging knowledgeable and the birds AMAZING.Didnt think you would get so close to some of them. So many different owls and they all looked pristine. Met a lovely volunteer equally helpful. Refreshments midway very nice and very well organised 're covid. Highlight the demonstrations when the birds flew and how .Then there are the gorgeous little burrowing owls .Cannot recommend more highly .
Excellent Bird of Prey Centre. Went for the Raptor Fair 2020 and even though a lot of other events were getting cancelled these guys moved heaven and earth to, not only get this show on but also, make it fantastic. The flying displays were excellent, the star of the show for us was Natalie's little Merlin however I was very impressed with the showmanship of the NCBP staff on the mic.
Situated in the beautiful Duncombe park, Helmsley. This place will astound you. It's obvious that the people here are passionate about the wellbeing of the birds housed here and conservation in general. The flying displays are amazing and very informative. Top marks!
Extremely interesting place to visit. Very dedicated staff who are informative. Brilliant flying display of raptors. All birds in outside cages so easy to walk around outdoors. Enjoyed the cafe.
I've been here several times in various seasons and it never disappoints. The staff are very knowledgeable and obviously thoroughly enjoy working with the birds to give them the best experience they can. Birds fly everyday. Different birds for different seasons. An absolute must when in the area.
