I came across Graham and his team at Gauntlet Birds of Prey whilst visiting Knowsley Safari Park. I was so impressed by the show that I saw that day, that I had to investigate them further! I revealed of course that not only is their show pretty famous around tourist attractions in the Northwest, but they have a tourist attraction all of their veryI went to visit them near Knutsford in Cheshire, and was so impressed by what I saw both at Knowsley and at their own site, that I simply had to have them in this book. But hey! Don’t just take my word for it, go and visit them for yourself! There you will find over 120 birds from over 45 species, the place is quite remarkable. Together with their Birds of Prey Experiences, they are the leaders of their field, a class above the rest!

Gauntlet runs a comprehensive range of experiences where you can get up close to our birds and fly anything from a tiny Owl on a taster experience to a huge Eagle on an Ultimate Eagle Encounter.

Since opening we have educated 1000s of children about the importance of animals and their conservation.
