The Tawny Owl

The main hunting method of the Tawny Owl is to find a tree or post to sit in, then look and listen until prey is pin pointed, before gliding silently in for the kill.

The Birds of Prey

Dalhousie Castle Falconry Mews houses an impressive variety of species of hawks, buzzards, falcons, eagles and owls. Below are some of the species you can meet and fly on our activities. Please note that we have seasonal Summer and Winter flyers to ensure all our birds get a well deserved rest and time for the moult, where they rest completely and eat a very rich diet to aid with the moulting of old feathers and the growth of strong new feathers. If there is a particular bird you would like to meet, please discuss this with our friendly falconers upon booking.
