You can get close to the birds, for an extra £2 you can hold a bird on your hand. Staff are great, also a good variety of birds in this small sanctuary.

Yes we could offer the 1 hour experience for him, we tend to find for the younger children this gives plenty of handling but without being too long, hope this helps Kind regards Karen
