Day Out To The Butterfly & Wildlife Park

Saturday, 12 May 2012

Owls & Hawks

The other day me and my mum went to the Butterfly and Wilflife Park about 45 minutes away from us. I remember going when I was little with my mum and my cousins but we haven't been in ages so we decided to go again as it had stopped raining for once!

We had a really nice day out and got there early enough to see them feeding the racoons and watch a bird of prey demonstration then later on held an owl and got to meet some of the others. The park is fairly small but cute and has a tropical house with butterflies, birds, fish, reptiles and even a turtle called George. Outside they also have racoons, ferrets (so adorable!), goats, sheep, water buffalo, llamas, owls, hawks, and other birds.

Apart from  a group of school children we were pretty much the only people there which was great as it meant we got to talk to the keepers about the animals for a while and be able to see some of the owls up close and even stroke them. I took a lot of photos during the day and I thought I'd make a proper little day out post and include them all so here you go!

Glasswing Butterfly

George the Tortoise!

 We got to stroke this owl, he was part of the bird demonstration and unbelievably soft.

Doves Nesting, you can see the eggs underneath.  

Toasted Tea Cakes to finish.

 I hope you enjoyed this post! If you know any other good wildlife parks like this one feel free to recommend them to me, I'd love to hear about your favourites.
