Take this hawk on a walk through our hazel woodland
Juan is a beloved part of our hawk walk team, but has such a steady and adaptable nature that he can also put on an impressive display in the arena. He lives with his two brothers and his sister at the centre, and they are six years old. His easy-going personality means that he is comfortable around people of all ages, and therefore allows the opportunity to see these skilled hunters in very close proximity. they are extremely successful predators, and their versatile flying style means they can catch birds in flight, insects in the undergrowth, and mammals through cover and in open areas. The saying ‘eyes of a hawk’ is not a misconception; Juan has acute vision which keeps him on top of his game in his pursuit of a successful hunt. Studies have suggested that their vision is eight times better than a human and if they could read they could decipher a newspaper headline from a football pitch length away!!!!
