Birdland is officially launching a brand new owl-based feature over the October Half Term holidays (Saturday 24th October – Sunday 1st November).
The Parliament of Owls is the latest attraction at the Bourton-on-the-Water wildlife park which is home to eight different owl species.
Among the birds on show in the new aviaries are snowy owls, burrowing owls, great grey owls, spectacled owls and Indian scops owls. Visitors can also meet Mackinder’s eagle owls, Chaco owls and white faced owls.
As well as celebrating one of the most iconic bird species this half term Birdland is also aiming to raise awareness of their plight in the wild and what we can all do to help protect them.
As well as its more exotic inhabitants, Birdland and the surrounding Nature Area also has its own resident group of native tawny owls.
All five UK species of owl have been spotted in Gloucestershire making it the perfect location to have a hoot this half term.
With its combination of woodland, riverside and gardens, Birdland features more than 500 birds, ranging from birds of prey and parrots to cassowaries and cranes in a mix of free-flying and aviary displays.
For more information please visit www.birdland.co.uk. Tickets must be booked online in advance.
Dogs are welcome at Birdland Park & Gardens but we do ask that you keep them on a lead at all times. Water bowls can be found in the park by the café.
