Birds of prey, like people, come in all sorts of shapes, sizes and colours. They all fly (unlike people) in all sorts of different ways too. Also like people, they are often misunderstood.
During Elite Falconry’s two flying demonstrations in the Main Ring on all three days of the show, they will be flying birds from all across that varied spectrum to show this tremendous variety, from some of the smallest, to some of the largest. Drawing on their amazing team of birds, including some produced in their fantastic breeding for a conservation project, they will fly stealthy owls, hawks, super fast falcons, buoyant kites, natures clean up crew in the shape of vultures, and of course super powerful eagles.
While you marvel at the birds, you can be sure you will learn a little from the entertaining but educational commentary and likely have some misconceptions corrected. Be prepared to be amused as the birds often tie the falconers in knots!
The static display of birds of prey also supplied by Elite Falconry in the falconry mews, allows you to get closer to the cast of characters. Their helpful staff will be on hand throughout to answer questions and chat in more detail about the birds, and the 4000-year-old art of Falconry.
