Birdland, Bourton-on-the-water


This is a zoo with over 500 birds of many interesting and exotic species. The penguins are a popular sight at feeding time!


Bourton-on-the-water, Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, UK.


This was reasonably photographer-friendly. I used a tripod for much of the time. (I didn't use flash). There were the usual problems with the caged birds, such as the netting getting in the way

In the absence of their own web site, here are a few photographs of larger species taken there:

King Penguin Humboldt Penguin Probably Greater Flamingo Probably Caribbean Flamingo Probably Caribbean Flamingo
