We are opening up on the Fourth Sunday of each month to hopefully help us generate some much needed funds to keep the centre running.
PLEASE READ – We are a family run Community Interest Company with Myself (generally behind the till), my husband who is the centres Falconer and our three daughters who you will probably see around the centre (10, 8 and 6 years old). We rescue and rehabilitate injured and unwanted Birds of Prey/Raptors and animals – providing them with a forever home here with us.
As you will see when you walk around the site, a lot of the aviaries are looking very tired and run down. We are aware of this. This is on our ‘to do’ list at the end of the 2019 season. We have transformed this site so much since purchasing the centre in 2007. We don’t get any assistance from the government or council. Our funding comes entirely from our generous visitors, sponsors and donors whose ticket purchases and contributions help us to keep the centre running all year round.
Many commercial centres breed and sell birds for profit to fund their organisation. This goes entirely against our ethos and only assists in creating a bigger problem. In recent years the influence of movies, media and financially lucrative markets has increased the number of unwanted birds.
We provide a permanent, caring safe haven for each and every bird or animal currently in our care now and in the future. Our aim, and the purpose of the centre is to educate our visitors, allow them to learn more about our magnificent and beautiful birds and provide a relaxed, informed and fun environment. Our hope is that this knowledge will prevent people impulsively buying birds of prey as pets and to enable them to understand the commitment that owning a bird of prey requires.
We hope you enjoy your visit to the centre
