There’s a host of egg-citing Easter events and activities taking place at Birdland throughout the holidays (Friday, April 6th – Sunday, April 28th).

As well as Easter trails, quizzes and daily egg-themed talks and shows, the Gloucestershire wildlife attraction is also expecting some egg-stra special new arrivals in their hatchery.

Dozens of eggs in special incubators are due to hatch out over the Easter break and visitors will have the rare opportunity of watching the newborn chicks make their way into the world.

“Easter is always a busy time of the year for us as we wait for the eggs to hatch,” said Birdland’s Head Keeper, Alistair Keen.

The park, which is home to the only breeding group of king penguins in England, has an excellent record with its captive breeding programme for rare and endangered bird species.

Among the new feathered arrivals are a female crowned crane, a hamerkop, a male blacksmith plover, a Madagascan teal and a pair of blue bellied rollers which will all move into the park’s new ‘Out of Africa’ feature.

Other new arrivals include a female burrowing owl, two female azure winged magpies and a male grey peacock pheasant who keepers hope will hit it off with their female.

Families can join in the Easter Challenge Quiz, throughout the Easter holidays, hunting down 10 hidden eggs around the park and answering some fun ornithological questions.

There are plenty of opportunities to brush up on bird facts at daily feeding and talks shows where visitors get to meet the keepers who care for all the birds in the park.

At the indoor Discovery Zone, visitors can meet other animals that lay eggs; ranging from fish and amphibians to reptiles and even mammals plus there’s the chance to enjoy some hands-on experiences in the Close Encounter Zone.

Visitors can also go back in time to hunt for dinosaur eggs in the Jurassic Journey trail and explore prehistoric fossils in the Dino Dig.
