Our Birds

At the British Bird of Prey Centre, our birds are indigenous, resident or regular visitors to the UK and can therefore all be found somewhere in the British Isles. 

As well as learning about the species of Owl and Raptor that help support and balance our vital natural ecosystems, you will discover that each of these wonderful birds of prey has it's own very different personality. 

There are the shy ones and the divas, there are some that are quiet but others that can be very talkative. They all have their own routines for the day and most are pretty good time-keepers, so you will see that they know when it is time to fly.  

The information here will tell you a bit about who you can expect to see on your visit and some more information about the species itself. 

Once you have decided on your favourite, why not sponsor them? Details of sponsorship are below and there is a link on each birds profile so that you know you are looking after the one you want to. 

Sponsor one of our birds

It is fantastic to be fully open again and have everyone back with us.  We are enjoying seeing you all and we can tell the birds are too.

However, this is still a difficult time for us, and your support is as vital as ever. If you are considering sponsoring your favourite bird, be assured, we and they are incredibly grateful. Whatever the amount your sponsorship will go towards food and welfare.

All of our birds of prey have unique personalities, each one has a unique character, and you can get to know them better when you come to visit. Some are shy, some will be noisy and others are the biggest attention seekers! We are sure you will find a kindred spirit here amongst them. 

The sponsorship of one of our team can help us with their essential welfare, veterinary care and quality diet. Your donations will allow us to continue to care for our birds to the highest standards regardless of the unusual times we are all living through. Thank you for your continued support.
