Bespoke Insulated Falconry Mews

Custom Built Falconry Mews for Housing Birds of Prey

Based on our Chapman aviary, this bespoke falconry mews had a security entrance and large birdhouse.  Our customer wanted a secure mews for their bird of prey, but they didn’t want any mesh on the building.  With this in mind, we swapped the mesh front for galvanised bars which is considered by many falconers to be safer for birds of prey.

Chapman Aviary

 

Features

The aviary needed to be fit for purpose – safe, easy to clean and usable.  The security entrance provided a two-door entry to prevent the bird from escaping, and we lined it with wipe-clean PVC.  The entrance also had a phenolic coated floor, which is hard-wearing and easy to clean with disinfectant.  As well as security, the entrance area also provided space to store feed, tethers and other raptor essentials. The large flight area had no flooring to allow our customer to add gravel after installation.  To keep the aviary cool in summer and warm in winter, we insulated the entire structure.  We lined the insulation with white PVC, therefore creating a space that is wipable and easy to clean.

Bird Aviary for Alex

We were contacted to build a custom aviary for a lovely boy called Alex.  Alex’s dad wanted a bespoke layout and sized enclosure to house Alex’s owl.  It needed to have an open-fronted nest box along with a mesh security entrance.



Alex has a type of bone cancer that he is receiving treatment for in America.  He has been through things that no child should ever have to worry about, however, he is inspiration for many.  Alex continues to enjoy life to the full, having a passion for the outdoors and nature.  He has a keen interest in animals of all kinds and our aviary is to house his pet owl.  Find out more about Alexander’s Journey.  You can also follow him on social media.

Wooden Falconry Mews

Three bay falconry mews with bars and mesh windows

We were contacted to build a three bay wooden falconry mews for our customer’s birds of prey.  He requested that two housing units have 5cm galvanised bars, while the third would have 25mm x 25mm galvanised wire mesh.  We delivered and fitted the wooden aviary block to Llangollen in Wales. The three bay mews was based on our Sandwell Aviary Block. You can now buy our Carsington Falconry Mews on our website!

Falconry Mews With Shutters

Wooden falconry mews to house birds of prey having drop down shutters over window with galvanised bars

A two bay falconry mews delivered and installed to Guildford, having galvanised bars and closing window shutters. Based on our Sandwell Aviary Block, we swapped the mesh windows for galvanised bars.  It is sometimes an issue that some birds of prey can damage their feathers when mesh is used in an enclosure.  Therefore, our customer requested 5cm gap bars be used instead to create a strong and safe housing unit.  We also added drop-down, closing shutters which provide darkness and temperature control if required.

Our customer had a tight space to fit the mews, so we built it to his specification.  He also requested a freezer shed to keep his raptor meals outside.  The shed had double doors and a pent roof to match the aviary block.

We build our aviaries and raptor housing without a floor, therefore any preferred base material can be used and hosed out when required.  This style of mews housing is ideal for adding perches and tethers.
