Ray Prior Falconry

Appearing on both days.

Ray Prior is one of the leading falconers in the country with a wide selection of beautiful birds for display that will provide an entertaining, educational and awe-inspiring performance.

ray-prior-falconry-2Ray does a range of events with Falcons, Hawks, Owls and Eagles. Maximum participation and interaction with the birds is encouraged during the displays.

ray-prior-falconry-1Falconry dates back many centuries and many of the terms used today have originated from this activity. For example “fed up” which relates to the bird not having the inclination to fly to hunt because he is full of food. Another term is “to come to the end of its tether” which means the bird has come to the end of its training line and needs to be set free.

The birds are not camera shy and are very used to being filmed or pictures taken with or without flashes so why not bring your cameras along and take pictures of them at close quarters.
