The Curraghs Wildlife Park is holding a falconry weekend on Saturday, April 26, and Sunday, April 27.

Phil Gibbons will be on hand all day to answer questions, give information and host flying demonstrations at 1pm and 3pm.

Previous visits from Phil and his team of flying birds, from Ringside Falconry in Country Durham, have proved popular at the park.

The display features a wide variety of birds of prey from all around the world.

There are two 30-minute flying shows and the chance for the audience to get close to and even be photographed with some of the birds in between performances.

Wildlife Park boss Kathleen Graham said: ‘Phil’s visits are always popular, as well as entertaining and informative. It is a chance not only to see these wonderful birds, but to learn about them and the skills of falconry.’

The Steam Packet = is helping out by assisting with Phil’s travel to the island with his birds.
