Owl and Hawk Walks Through the Woods.
The Owl and Pussycat Centre arose as a result of requests from the public, to visit birds of prey in a natural environment.
We are not a falconry centre that offers flying displays, your experience here at Brucklay will be more hands on. You will be able to experience communicating and engaging with the birds, as well as taking them for a walk through the woods. You will learn something about their likes and dislikes along with how they are cared for
We are now able to offer Owl and Hawk walks through our woods. In addition to the walk you will receive information on the birds and how they are kept, this will include dietary information along with tuition on how to handle the birds. You will be accompanied by an experienced handler on the walk, don't worry there are resting places on route in case you find the bird gets a little heavy, particularly if you choose to walk our European Eagle Owls! The experience lasts about 2 hours, an hour is spent meeting the birds and learning how to handle them and having your photograph taken with them and then choosing the bird you would like to walk with. The walk takes approximately one hour and is through the woodland situated on this private, secluded and tranquil estate, the walk is on flat ground, taken at an easy pace and is suitable for people of all ages and abilities.
