The centre has aviaries housing over 80 owls and other birds of prey plus features a woodland walk with Red Squirrels, Meerkat Kastle & the S.O.S. Owl Safari for youngsters. There are no formal flying displays during the winter but the birds are exercised regularly when circumstances allow and you are welcome to watch.

Our flying season starts on April 1st. Flying demonstrations take place daily interspersed with Meet The Meerkat feeding times at 11.00 and 3.00. Our unique come-and-go admission ticket means you can see all the shows - each one featuring 4 different owls and birds of prey - plus both meerkat sessions, but leave the Sanctuary to look around the Stonham Barns complex whenever you like.
