Raptors wing it to the skies over Tayto Park

by Gazette Reporter

SOME 20 rare birds of prey are now living at Tayto Park as part of its World of Raptors exhibit.
The park’s brand-new open air seating arena is home to the exhibit which gives visitors a very rare up close and personal experience with the magnificent species, with various species of eagles, owls, vultures and falcons from all across the world taking part in a free-flying demonstration at the arena.
Not only can visitors enjoy the aerial displays
featuring the world’s largest eagles and fastest birds of prey, as well as impressive vultures and iconic owls, they also learn all about these birds with educational talks from the bird of prey team.

Speaking on the latest attraction at Tayto Park, a team spokesperson said: “We’re very excited for the opening of World of Raptors. It’s been a very busy time getting all the birds fit and ready for the display, so it’s great the time is finally here for the opening.
“Working with raptors is a very special job and we’re lucky to get to share our work with everyone that visits. It’s amazing getting to see them grow and express their natural behaviours, just as they would do in the wild.”
World of Raptors opened on July 20 with falconry displays and educational talks taking place twice daily at Tayto Park.
