March Of Winter


This little chap will soon be reminded of home, as we've finally had some cold weather in and around Cheltenham over the last few nights. It feels like winter is coming. The Penguins at Birdland in Bourton on the Water, east of Cheltenham, are one of the most popular stars of the feathered show. The King Penguins here are the only group in England, and the only others in the UK are at Edinburgh Zoo. All the inhabitants of the Penguin enclosure have their own name and the keeper says they all have their own personality too, which just adds to the fun at feeding time! Feeding time is at 2.30pm daily except christmas day. I presume they feed the birds on christmas day, its just closed to the public. Its well worth a visit as you can get up close to the Penguins as they are only surrounded by a low wall. The park is also home to over 500 birds including Flamingos, Pelicans and Parrots. A good day out for kids of all ages.
