Resumption of our Experience Days
Updated: Thursday, 16th July, 2020
Following the recent government statement we are now able and pleased to announce a resumption of our Birds of Prey Experiences.
As a family business we rely a lot upon our Experience Days as well as the displays that we give throughout the year. Many Country Shows have obviously been postponed or cancelled and our concern was not to leave our birds vulnerable. Your continued support, therefore, goes a long way in helping us to care for our birds and maintain the breeding programme, whilst ensuring the survival of CJ’s Birds of Prey.
You are now able to re-book or redeem your original experience or purchase new personalised vouchers for our 2 Hour Birds of Prey or Owl Encounter Experiences at either Westmill Farm, Hertfordshire or Orton Hall Hotel, Peterborough. You can also bring along spectators for just £10.00 each (payable on the day). Vouchers will be valid for 12 months.
We are now issuing new availability dates, so please contact us as soon as possible to secure your booking.
During your 2 hour session you will experience the thrill of handling and flying a variety of CJ's Birds of Prey's majestic raptors. This can include hawks, falcons, owls or an eagle or just owls with our "Owl Encounter". Under the supervision of our expert handlers we give you the opportunity to handle and fly some of these magnificent birds in the picturesque Hertfordshire countryside or in the stunning parkland surrounding Orton Hall near Peterborough.
