The Falconry Centre – birds of prey arena display
Kinver Country Fayre welcomes back the ever-popular falconry display team from Hagley. See these birds and the skilled falconer showing off their skills in the arena.
There will also be a display of birds on a pitch on the fields, enabling visitors to meet the birds at close quarters.
The display comprises different types of birds such as Harris hawks, owls, falcons and at least one of the larger impressive birds, an eagle or a vulture. The birds fly at very close quarters to people, with falcons flying at speeds of over 40mph! A commentary is given by the falconer throughout the display. The birds are used to travelling and attending displays and are happy to be in the presence of the public.
