A NEW visitor attraction has taken flight at Belhus Woods Country Park.
The MYCA Falconry Group is inviting young people and their families to get close to nature at its Bird of Prey Centre during the school holidays.
Jenette Ogborn, from MYCA, said: “You can see the birds up close and even hold one of the birds for a minimum donation. We also hold flying displays, weather permitting, and we’ll happily answer any questions.”
The centre - run by a dedicated team of volunteers - relies solely on donations and fundraising for its work, which includes re-homing birds.
There is also a cafe for refreshments on site with ice cream on hot days, opportunities for a picnic and plenty of wildlife and woods to explore.
The centre, in Romford Road, South Ockendon, is open from 10.30am to 4pm Monday to Saturday and between 11am and 4pm on Sunday.
