An amazing experience for any owl enthusiast, this 90-minute encounter session allows you the chance to get hands-on with a wide variety of different owl species from around the world.
The session begins with an introduction to Baytree Owl & Wildlife Centre, followed by a brief instruction in how to handle the birds. Paticipants then get to don a glove and have a go at flying up to five members of our display team. Although species vary throughout the season, you can guarantee that the recipient will create a special memory they will never forget.
