Welcome to the Cornish Birds of Prey Centre

“We are a family run Community Interest Company based in rural St Columb, Cornwall. The Cornish Birds of Prey Centre rehomes and rehabilitates injured and unwanted Birds of Prey/Raptors – providing them with a forever home. Enjoy getting up close and personal with our stunning collection of falcons, eagles, hawks, owls, parrots and much more. Meet and talk to our skilled handlers, whilst enjoying one of our breath taking flying displays, and discover what makes our birds of prey ‘masters of the sky’ – a great day out for all ages”

Our Visitors Feedback

Made my holiday!

“I loved my time today one hour handling was brilliant what a lovely bunch of staff and the place is so clean I couldn’t fault anything at all I would advise everyone to visit this place it’s made my holiday x”

“Great day had”

“We had a great day visiting the centre and will definitely recommend this centre to friends and family”

Lovely Birthday Celebration!

“Had a lovely birthday celebration doing the falconry experience. Andy knows his stuff and his passion and straight talking attitude are refreshing. Thank you for letting me into your world for a few hours!”

Best Birthday Present!

“I took my Aunty to have a flying experience here yesterday. She said it was the best birthday present she’s ever had and I thought it was definitely money well spent! The owners, Kelly and Andy are not only friendly and welcoming, but completely knowledgable too, we learnt so much! Their passion and caring is obvious everywhere in the centre, it was immaculate and the birds were loved as well as cared for, their wellbeing was paramount. Could not recommend it highly enough! If you are in Cornwall, it is a must see!”

Terrific Place!

“Terrific place it’s worth the entrance fee just for the flying display alone
This is the only attraction my late wife insisted on visiting every time we were in Cornwall 
The staff are knowledgeable and approachable and seem to really care about the birds 
Any questions asked to the staff are answered in a simple to understand way, you don’t feel “talked down” to like other places
You don’t feel you are nuisance like some other animal/bird attractions I’ve visited
The only drawback is they are hundreds of miles away from where I live probably just as well for them because I would live there !
Highly recommended something for every one give it a visit soon”

Lasting Impression

“I booked a half day falconry experience for my husband’s Birthday – and to cut to the chase, it was amazing. Andy really knows his stuff, and the love and passion he – and the whole family have for this centre is evident. We were really moved by the whole experience, so much so we asked to get involved! My husband now volunteers on Sunday’s! Amazing place, amazing family doing an amazing job!”

Super Day Out

“We had a super day out at your Family Fun Day on Sunday, made more special by the lovely Will Young’s Special Appearance opening up a brand new building!! He was amazing!(wish he’d given us an impromptu song!! But the Band there were fab with great vocals!)
Lovely Family run Centre with friendly staff and a good family day out for us all. Lots of Birds to see, Flying shows and lots of knowledge and passion in this area from the Owner……5* from us and we’ll see you again!”

A Must Visit!

“Book a falconary experience it is a fantastic experience which you will never forget, a must visit centre when in Cornwall!”

Do any of you remember The Tawny Owl that was delivered to us in the early hours by the police a month or so ago?? Well last night we had the joy of releasing him back into the wild 😊. As we had our new hospital unit kindly paid by Tesco 'bags for help scheme' and Barney the Tawny Owl was the first one admitted in after completion, we thought we would get everyone together for the release. So we had Jan from Groundwork, PC Holland from Newquay, Terry the photographer and obviously myself and Andy. It was a perfect location, ideal weather conditions and a great release. ...

This video is amazing. I absolutely love it. Thank you so much to the very talented Dan O'Sullivan. This was one of Dan's modules for his Falmouth University Course. I hope you will all agree it really is fantastic. Not only did he donate this video to the centre but himself and two friends (Pete and Jack) volunteered at the centre for a couple of weeks and helped out tremendously 🙂 ... See MoreSee Less
