Welcome to Shropshire Falconry

Welcome to Shropshire Falconry

Our Experiences

We can offer you a personal and bespoke Bird of prey experience at our own premises set in the heart of the Shropshire countryside. We also have an Indoor Flying Arena and Training room. With approximately 70 birds on site, we offer Owl Experiences, Hawk walks, Talks and 1/2 day Falconry Experiences on site. You will never share your experience with anyone outside your party, so it will be carried out in a relaxed and personal environment. Our hawk walks can be carried out in 3 different venues, Hawkstone Park, Soulton Hall, & Chirk Castle  (on certain days).  We are also working with Carden Park and Peckforton Castle for experiences at those venues.

We make every effort to make sure your experience is both friendly and memorable…which is why we have so many lovely trip advisor reviews

Animal Activities Licence

We hold an Animal Activities Licence which is required by law to undertake any activities with Birds of Prey. We gained our Licence in May of 2019 which was issued by Shropshire County Council, (Licence Number 19/00958/AIAL) our licence holder is Stephen M Cross. We hold this licence as we do not need a zoo licence.

Courses and Training

The Hawk Board, in conjunction with RaptorAwards, have designed the first level of training to establish a standard of competence for beginners. This is known as the Beginning Falconry Award and is administered by Raptor Awards.

The award is available through a number of Approved Assessment Points (AAPs) where recognised Assessors will check the depth of knowledge and practical competence of candidates.

Shropshire Falconry are one of those Assessment points

Raptor & Owl Rescue

At Shropshire Falconry we are often contacted when people have lost birds, found birds, or find injured Birds and Owls

We are more than happy to care for any injured Bird of Prey handed to us, and where possible will release the bird back into the wild.

If you find an Injured or Lost Bird of Prey in Shropshire Please call us on 07968 715564

We will endeavour to offer you advise over the phone or arrange to take the bird to our specialist vets for immediate treatment, we can also give the bird respite care untill it can be re-released when possible.

Hunting Days

This is a day for people who want to experience Falconry as it has been practiced for hundreds of years.  The day will start at  9.30am with a brief  introduction and handling session, so you are used to and comfortable with the birds. We will be using our team of experienced Harris Hawks & Goshawks who know exactly what to do (just in case you don’t)

When you book your day with us you will not be sharing it with any other customers, the bird you are given will be with you for the day and together you will pit yourself against some very fit and lively Rabbits, Duck, Pheasants and Squirrels.   If you have booked a Full day out with us we will break at Lunch for some food and a well deserved drink before resuming in the afternoon

Please be aware we are NOT open to the public. ALL experiences need to be pre-booked. This is to give you a more personal and private experience
