|Welcome to Cheshire Waterlife - Falconry|
"Have you ever wanted to witness the beauty and raw power of an Eagle in full flight? Once the flying of these birds was reserved for the use of Kings but is now available to you. Our Eagle Encounter is a unique experience where you are given the opportunity to fly our selection of magnificent Eagles, which includes; A White Tailed Sea Eagle, one of the largest eagles in the world, A Bateleur Eagle and a Russian Steppe Eagle.
The six hour experience begins with an introduction to the ancient art of Falconry and is followed by a tour of our aviary complex, where you will be able to view other species such as a large variety of rare Owls, Hawks, Vultures and Falcons. You will then be taught how to handle the Eagles safely during an introductory lesson. The emphasis of this encounter is to be able to fly the eagles free in the Cheshire countryside. Feel their strength and see the magnificence of nature as they land on your glove. The encounter will recommence after lunch when you will continue to develop your rapport with these amazing birds."
"Following the success of the Eagle Encounter Gift Pack we have recently made available a new session for owl enthusiasts. Fancy spending 3 hours with just owls? Well the owl encounter is for you.
