Kingsley Bird and Falconry Centre
The Sanctuary, Sprinks Lane,
Nestled on a hillside overlooking the beautiful Churnet Valley, a “little piece of heaven” is taking shape for a couple who have invested the last seven years of their lives on an incredible project. Their task has been to transform a 30-acre site, much in need of some tender loving care, into a unique habitat for some very special birds. In a delightful woodland setting, visitors can now marvel at the sight of rare and spectacular owls and birds of prey from around the world. They might choose to join a guided tour, experience supervised one-to-one handling or spend a half day learning about falconry, but whatever the option, visitors leave in awe of these majestic birds and cannot fail to be impressed when they hear of the dedication of a very determined couple of conservationists
