Our day at the British Wildlife Centre

23rd April 2017

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 🙂

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!

    Some wonderful pictures, the intense almost calculating look in the eyes of the fox – brilliant.
