The Kielder Centre contains the North of England's largest and most complete collections of Birds Of Prey!
At the Centre you will discover a vast variety of species to observe and learn about, plus fascinating information on their arguably essential role within natural world ecology. They also play a significant role in captive breeding programmes for conservation purposes so it's truly fascinating stuff if you're of a mind to learn it, but not rammed down one's throat: so if you'd just like to look at the pretty birdies that's okay too!
You can watch a Falcon swoop down from the skies at over 100mph, plus see the speed and grace of Eagles, Hawks and Kites. You can even sometimes experience the special thrill of handling some of these beautiful and extraordinary birds! Flying displays are available to view March through October, weather permitting, at 13:30 and 15:00.
Walking around the rest of the grounds you can often also spot badgers, roe deer, otters and shrews plus many birds and, of an evening, bats!
