I was purchased the experience of Birdkeeper for the Day as a birthday present. I booked it for 29th May 2014 and arrived not REALLY knowing what to expect! All I can say is that I had the most fantastic, FANTASTIC day! I was warmly met, looked after SO, SO well by Paula and her birdkeeper team as well as Ben and Sylvie - the education team. I was shown so many things behind the scenes as well as hands on feeding of so many different birds including - the beautiful penguins. Everything was explained to me from hatching, rearing, breeding, feeding, enrichment and general care and welfare of all the birds. Zoe let me cuddle a baby penguin that she has hand reared. I also took part in various events/shows - Pelican, Penguin, Great Bustards feeding and talks as well as the Outdoor Flying Display. Just to be part of the team, to see how hard they work and how well they love and care for the birds was such a wonderful experience. As you may have realised by now I had such fun, learnt so much and had a great time. Sorry that I have not mentioned all the keepers by name but I want to mention some of the birds - French Freddie, Harold, Charlie, Barnaby and SO many more. I cannot recommend this experience enough but IF this day out is too much for your pocket there are other experiences. If not just visit for the day there is so much to see. Thank you Birdworld and all your staff. Julie xxx
