Is it teething time for your little one?
If you are looking for something a little different to do with the kids over the summer, Woodlands Falconry, the educational bird of prey centre at Rathwood, will be hosting free flying displays. The bird of prey flying displays will start on Sunday July 15th and will take place from Wednesdays to Sundays at 4pm until September, weather permitting.
 
Woodlands Falconry at Rathwood is the home to over 30 birds, including hawks, falcons and owls. The free displays will allow families to see some of these magnificent birds in full flight. There are lots of other activities available at the centre including guided hawk walks, courses for people interested in falconry and school tours.
 
Since its opening in 2009, the centre has been home to many rescue birds. Tommy Byre, from Woodlands Falconry at Rathwood, says “We look after them and, once they are healthy again, we release them again to the wild.” Tommy has been working with the birds of prey for over 20 years. “At the moment, apart from our permanent residents, the kids can also meet and play with Henry; our baby Blue Parakeet. Henry is four weeks old and was rejected by his mother at birth so we are hand-rearing him.”
