THIS bank holiday Monday, Hartlebury Castle visitors can get up close to birds of prey and watch them soar in a day packed with family fun.

The Falconry Centre will be bringing a variety of birds for visitors to see and there will be the opportunity to watch flying demonstrations in the castle grounds. 

Visitors can also meet owls from Chelmarsh Rescue and the RSPB will be at the castle with plenty of information about birds and nature. Children can also make their own bird house mobile to take home and follow the castle explorer trail.
