Keeping birds of prey

This course lasts for 3 days from 9am to 4pm (During the week but can be done in 2 sections rather than in one go) and is open to all age groups that believe they will be able to achieve the outcomes stated. Along with this week long course you will be invited back to spend a further day with us approximately one month later to refresh your skills and will allow you opportunity to obtain further experience or exposure.

The aim here is to provide some background knowledge regarding the importance of careful maintenance of a bird of prey including signs of ill health & distress, weight management, feeding requirements and legal aspects of ownership. Then this will be put into practice learning correct methods of handling & interacting with birds, restraint, accommodation and hygiene where the majority of the week will be spent outside interacting & learning from the birds themselves.

Units to be covered;

  • C1. Accommodation and Equipment

  • C2. Feeding and nutrition

  • C3. Monitoring and maintaining health

  • C4. Catching, restraining and moving birds of prey

  • C5. Legislation (UK)

This entire course is £360 per person and you will be taught on a 1 to 1 basis with 20% classroom and 80% practical work. 

Refreshments will be provided but lunch is to be brought on each day.
