Birds of Prey at Betteshanger Park

The Sky Birds Of Prey display team will be visiting Betteshanger Park with their magnificent birds.

Appreciate the beautiful world of falconry, get up close with Barn Owls, Eagle Owls, Harris Hawks and Falcons; learn about the behaviour of these extraordinary birds and witness their fantastic displays during flight.

There will also be Owl Pellet Dissection sessions from 11am to 2pm.  Examine real owl pellets and identify all the left over grisly bits upchucked by the birds – can you work out what they had for dinner?

There will be a small charge of £3 for this activity.
