Since 1999, RFOC has nurtured and protected the biodiversity of these woodlands – creating a secure home for the Centre residents alongside the native woodland birds, animals and plants.
Wood is our preferred building material which yes, has only a limited life-span. It does however negate the damage that man-made materials leave on the landscape.
Conservation initiatives have encompassed a range of differing options and a strong Educative component has developed along surprising lines in this quiet corner of Rutland.
Always, the continued care and wellbeing of the Birds of Prey and Animals at Rutland Falconry and Owl Centre remains paramount.
We are privileged to be custodians of precious Ancient Woodland bordered by the majestic Black Poplar at Burley Bushes – extending over 42 acres close to Rutland Water.
The Centre is home to a superb international collection of Birds of Prey – Owls, Hawks, Buzzards, Falcons, Eagles and Vultures who live next to a fascinating array of flora and fauna.
Some of the Birds of Prey are happy to be held, some will fly for you while others prefer to be admired from a safe distance.
Our Sponsors and Friends of the Centre are vital in helping us support the work of Rutland Falconry and Owl Centre Conservation initiatives always benefit from additional support – you can help Rutland Falconry and Owl Centre by way of sponsoring or adopting a variety of Birds of Prey living at the Centre.
The wild bird, animal and plant species to be found within the varied habitats of the centre include the familiar such as blue tits, rabbits and bluebells . . . but as the ecology of this habitat has strengthened we have seen more scarce species making an appearance.
