The Outdoor Owl Show offers a unique experience to see these beautiful owls as they fly.

You will get a good look at the owls as our handlers talk to you about some of the individual features of the different species we have here at the sanctuary.

The show takes place at the Outdoor Flying Arena which is located behind the Jumping Pillows and it runs for approximately 20 minutes.

Please note that all children must be accompanied by their parents or a responsible adult and they must not enter the flying zone.

Close Encounters with the Owls

On occasion, if the group is small enough or you are visiting us in the off-peak season you may be chosen to stroke or even hold one of the owls. This decision will be entirely down to the handlers as they are aware of the mood and state of the owls at the time. If you are lucky enough to touch an owl, please make sure you wash your hands thoroughly afterwards at one of our hand washing facilities.

Learning Experience

When you come to one of our shows you will have the opportunity to learn about the owls that live in our sanctuary. Our handlers will talk about the traits and techniques of each species, as well as some of the characters of these birds that they know so well.

The highlight of our day was the owl flying display. The team (Mark, Ben James and Sophie) working with the owls were very knowledgable and gave a good presentation.
