Welsh Hawking Centre

The Welsh Hawking Centre and Children's Animal Park is a hawking centre on Weycock Road (A4226 road) on the northwestern outskirts of Barry, Vale of Glamorgan, in southern Wales. It contains the largest collection of birds of prey in Wales,[1] with over 200 birds on site including eagles, owls, hawks, falcons and buzzards.[2]

In 2007 seven falcon chicks were stolen from the centre.[3]
