On our way down to St. Ives we kept passing a road sign for Screech ! Will this time we decided to stop and take a look. I’m not expert so it was good that the wife knows all the bird types on the planet and she could help me out. We spent two or three hours wandering around the centre having the chance to see all these fantastic birds and owls up close both in the cages and with a flying display. The best part of course is to actually have them land or sit on your hand, pretty cool, well worth a visit. If you see that road sign on the A30 heading south towards Penzance, do yourself a favour and turn off, its a hoot.
