Bird Land Bourton on the Water - a bird-tastic day out

I was looking for somewhere different to go with J when someone suggested Bird Land, I checked out their website and armed myself with the postcode for the sat nab GL54 2BN and set off, the postcode takes you to the pay and display car park in Bourton which is right next door, we parked up and walked the short distance to Bird Land, and entered a feathered world of fun. 

The park is lovely with aviaries displaying various birds, they also have open pens for different birds such as flamingos, and other water birds, our favourite was the penguins who you can watch swimming under water with the viewing panels, J was fascinated watching them dive for their food, and coming up close to the glass. He raced around the aviaries taking in all the different birds and mocking their calls! 

The park is well laid out with lots of outdoor room for picnics to take it all in, with the weather looking glum we opted for the eatery on site, which was lovely, serving homely food and reasonable prices. The play area is well equipped with a sand table to build some master pieces. 

We spent hours here, and loved it. It's under a tender to get in, with children under 3 getting in for free! So another bonus.
 We will be returning again before the end of the year I'm sure it'll become one of our hot spots
