I once kept Four Tawny Owls and love all of them. So glad to see the Little Owls, Barn Owls and Eagle Owls. Also other birds of prey and an education centre. Very good and all free.

This was our second visit and Sadie was as enthusiastic and knowledgable about the birds as ever. As the number on these experience is limited you get lots of hands on time and loads of time to ask questions. Happy to recommend this centre .
