Falconry in Yorkshire
Wednesday 7th August 2019


Something new and really different – this is a fascinating introduction to the world of raptors – birds of prey. Kira and the crew of KL Falconry have invited Sportability for a very special day of falconry, on Wednesday 7th August 2019. Part informal lecture, part participation,as you actually get to hold the giant Eagle, the Harris Hawk or the cheeky Eagle Owl and learn a great deal about these beautiful creatures.

Our resident expert, Kira will treat you to a display of hunting and flying that is both impressive and exhilarating. The birds will swoop low over your head, feed whilst perched on your arm, or flash into the lure like an Exocet. And it is all explained in an informative, humorous, earthy style by the hugely knowledgeable and personable Kira.

KL Falconry in Yorkshire is one of the biggest centres in the UK for birds of prey, with over 200 specimens! These include all types of owls, eagles, falcons and hawks.

The plan is to meet at 10.30 am for a prompt start, ending at around 1.30 pm

We’ll gather in front of the Farm Shop for a ‘meet & greet’ and go behind the main buildings into the field where we will be flying and handling the birds

Paths are paved in places but mainly gravel, so anyone with a freewheel could bring it along.

There is a accessible portaloo on site and a tea room which does tea, coffee, soft drinks, ice cream and cake but no meals so bring a packed lunch. KL Falconry have set aside an eating area for us and will provide some refreshments.

This event is weather dependent, as the birds cannot fly in the rain or if it is too hot. We will expand more about this when you book.

You’ll get to up close and personal: Handle the birds feed and fly them. With a fantastic selection of these beautiful creatures It is not only exciting and educational, but a great natural experience.

So we look forward to seeing you there! And please: Don’t worry if you have never had an owl on your arm before, you’ll be amazed at what you might achieve.

It is always a day of fun and discovery. It’s not about being an expert – absolute beginners or never-evers all welcomed.

Strictly No Dogs!
