  3. Birds of prey centre to remain closed for five more weeks

    A change in government guidance has meant Thirsk Birds of Prey Centre in North Yorkshire must stay closed for another five weeks.

    Head Falconer Kerry Badgery said the birds' welfare, and the safety of visitors, comes first.

    "Zoos can open but there are restrictions on doing displays and timed feeding sessions, which means that unfortunately we can’t do our flying displays," she said.

    "We still need to be able to exercise our birds, and to exercise our birds that means we have to be able to fly the birds all day.

    "With the visitors walking around it wouldn’t be safe… we need to make sure our birds’ welfare comes first, and also the safety of our visitors."
