Bird of Prey Photography Day – 22nd June 2019
Your chance to get that perfect Bird of Prey shot that you’ve been hoping for!
The day begins at 11am, with 90 minutes of photography time, during which our falconry team will fly, pose and perch a range of birds of prey. The team will include birds which are not normally seen and flown, to allow you the exclusivity of getting a shot our other visitors can’t. You will then break at 12.30pm for a tasty lunch in our Tearoom before a further 2 hours with the falconry team, and a different range of birds. The day will end at 3.30pm. You are welcome to stay in the Arboretum until closing time if you wish, and can arrive from our opening time of 10am.
This is a ticket only event. Tickets are £60, or £55 for Season Ticket holders. This ticket includes access to the Arboretum and lunch in the Tearoom. Numbers are strictly limited.
Please see below for information on the event:
- Please meet in the Bird of Prey flying display area at 10.55am. You are welcome to arrive at the Tearoom from 10am, but we recommend that you arrive at 10.40am at the latest to give you time to travel across the Arboretum to the Bird of Prey Centre.
