Since the establishment of Lavenham Falconry in 2012, a number of Birds of Prey have been rehabilitated back into the wild ranging from Owls, Buzzards and Falcons.
Most of the Owls that come into the Centre are injured due to road accidents or orphaned Owlets found on the floor by Members of the Public.
With the Falcons and Buzzard’s that are brought into us because of Persecution from Humans or poor condition due to the weather and or lack of food, unfortunately lack of food plays a major part in the birds that are handed into us.
The Raptor Conservancy also takes in a number of other animals for reintroduction back into the wild. Any wildlife is welcome at Raptor Conservancy.
