Hawk Walks

Bird of Prey Activities

Cumberland Bird of Prey Centre - Falconry in North Cumbria and South West Scotland


Hawk Walks

If you are looking for a taste of falconry and don't want to break the bank the centre offers Hawk walks. Lasting about one hour this is a great way to get some hands on experience.

The Walk

During a hawk walk you will be given one of the centres Harris Hawks to carry into local woodland surrounding the centre. Once in the woods and accompanied by a fully trained falconer (that's usually me, Gary Swainson) we will allow the hawk to follow on from tree to tree returning periodically to the gloved fist for a reward. A hawk walk allows you to observe these amazing birds as they manoeuvre between tightly packed trees without ever colliding.
