Wild Bird Week

29th July - 4th August 2013

Wild Bird Week at The Royal Air Force MuseumBack by popular demand on 29th July until 4th August the Museum will be hosting ‘Wild Bird Week’, in conjunction with the English School of Falconry, when it will be displaying some of nature’s most beautiful and majestic flying predators on its helipad. Suitable for children of all ages, the museum will hold daily free three falconry displays at 11.30am, 1.30pm, and 3.30pm showcasing a different set of birds each day: either falcons, owls, hawks or eagles with one lucky child given the active role of Junior Falconer in Training during the course of the day.

After each session children will have the opportunity, for a limited time, to handle an owl and have their photograph taken with these wise and wondrous birds in the Museum’s Dermot Boyle Wing.

Should the weather prove to be inclement , if it's too windy or raining, when an outdoor display is due to occur we will hold a static display in the Museum's Dermot Boyle Wing when children will have the opportunity to handle an owl or an eagle under the supervision of one of the English School of Falconry team.
