avian_myths_and_legends_at_birdland


Visitors will be able to let their imagination fly away with them during October Half Term Holidays, October 19th – 3rd November.



Discover why owls are considered to be so wise, where the legend of the phoenix came from, and find out which birds call the Romans believed meant imminent death in a series of fun talks at the renowned Bourton-on-the-Water attraction.

There will be quiz trails to follow, close encounter sessions and feeding displays throughout the holidays.

Watch Keepers feed the King penguins and Humboldts twice daily as well as the pelicans and flamingos.

Journey back even further in time to when dinosaurs roamed the Cotswolds, more than 65 million years ago and embark on a fascinating expedition discovering life-size dinosaurs.

Explorers can venture into a Jurassic-themed landscape which is home to more than 30 different dinosaurs.

Find Brachiosaurus, Spinosaurus, Postosuchus, Velociraptors and more in the trail. Visitors will also be able to spot giant dinosaur eggs along with complete dinosaur skeletons.

The Jurassic Journey trail is also a fascinating reminder that today’s bird species are directly descended from dinosaurs. Other species to look out for are the spectacular flying Pteranodon, Allosaurus, and the mighty Tyrannosaurus Rex.

Along the trail visitors will be able to have a go at searching for fossils in the Dino Dig where there will be activity tables to learn more about dinosaurs.

Leaving the trail visitors will meet Birdland’s ratites, prehistoric-looking birds, and will be able to spot the similarities between the live birds and the dinosaurs.

Have fun over the half term holidays and learn about our legendary past.
