Our day at the British Wildlife Centre

What a fantastic day we had today! Noodle had been to the British Wildlife Centre near Lingfield before on a school trip. He loved the school visit and mentions it constantly. So, I decided to make the most of our last full day of the Easter holidays together.

We literally spent the whole day there. It’s not huge and even though they don’t open during the week in term time, it wasn’t crowded. Luckily, there was not a huge amount of walking involved, I’m very happily exhausted πŸ™‚

There is a talk on various animals every 30 minutes throughout the day, some of which are repeated. We saw red squirrels, foxes, deer, otters, wild cats, badgers, hedgehogs, mink, polecats, pine martens, various species of owls and so much more. Noodle didn’t want to join all the talks as a typical 6 yr old, but he actually retained a huge, unexpected amount of information!

My favourite was definitely the owl flying display. I just find them so amazing. The eagle owl is huge but you cannot hear it fly AT ALL. Simply stunning and very hard to capture!

Well, we had a lovely summer and although this has also gone way too fast, we did make the most of it. As always I did take a few snaps which hopefully will make up for my lack of weekly photos over the summer. We were just too busy having fun to write blogs πŸ˜‰
