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.

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.
