janet barber Hello, I'm Janet Barber. Today I've been invited to a school and these little friends are helping me teach the childen about British wildlife.

little owlI'll be showing them barn owls, tawny owls, little owls, ferrets, rabbits and more. The giant land snails aren't British but they're always good for a gasp !

Thank you for visiting our website. It'll tell you about the work we do - from breathtaking flying displays to introducing elderly folk to the less dramatic members of our menagerie.

We're best known for our birds of prey - owls, hawks and falcons, but keep different types of animals and birds for different age groups and abilities.

The animals are used to meeting strangers and enjoy a day out. Some came to us because their owners could no longer keep them and they needed a home.

Summer is our busy season with everyone from county shows to village fetes wanting to fly or see the birds. Luckily, when things get hectic, I can call on a skilled and enthusiastic team of volunteers.

We've teamed up with some great organisations like Flying Start and S4C. Though living in rural Wales many children rarely see or get close to wildlife - especially if it's nocturnal.

I've been interviewed twice about ferrets on BBC Radio and even had a walk-on part with one of my hawks in a documentary series about vets and exotic pets starring my local specialist vet Lance Jepson.

royal welsh showThe owls, hawks and falcons are always a big draw at county and local shows.

At the Royal Welsh we shared a stand with the Countryside Alliance. Hundreds of children had their 'photos taken with the birds.

If you want to get in touch please use the contact details below. Leave a message if the 'phone isn't answered - I might be in a classroom or clambering over a ditch. Sometimes the hawks go places mobile networks don't reach !
