***AVIAN INFLUENZA PRECAUTIONS***
To all visitors please note that due to the recent European outbreak of Avian Influenza we are following DEFRA guidelines to minimise risk to such a valuable collection.
Please note that this is purely precautionary and should not affect the enjoyment of your visit to the Bird of Prey and Mammal Centre at Thorp Perrow. We have ceased all flying activities for 30 days although we will be doing talks at display times with some of our birds. You may see some bio-security around the centre, please follow instructions and we hope that we see you soon at Thorp Perrow.
The Bird of Prey and Mammal Centre is open as normal every day.
