We are happy to have schools visit our Park. Our main objective for school visits is to enjoy learning about birds and nature. Schools may book a visit during school terms. We suggest a full day (around 5 hours depending on group size) to experience everything. We always recommend someone visits the park beforehand. We only allow one school in at a time with a maximum of 45 students who must be accompanied by 2-10 monitors (depending on group size and age). While visiting the bird areas, the number must be split into smaller groups so that the birds are disturbed as little as possible. The size of the groups will depend on the ages of the students.
Plan your school visit
Schools will be provided with a detailed guide to all areas in the park; we leave it up to the school teachers to enhance the visit according to the age and aptitudes of the students. Detailed written information about the birds and areas will be provided along with a map. A preview of this information will passed after payment.
Below you can find details of the main areas
Times are approximate and depend on the age and aptitude of the students:
The Bird Area is the main attraction of our park. Most of our birds are around 12-15cm but we do have a few of the larger species. Within this area we have informative displays to learn about wild bees, insects and bats. This route also includes other animals like tortoise, rabbits and donkeys. 60-90 min
The Wildlife Area has various small local animals and bird replicas. This area is particularly orientated for smaller children. There is also a wildlife pond where frogs and other animal life can be highlighted. 30-40 min
The Woodland Walk is designed to test everyone's observational skills. On this route full size replicas of native animals can be found in there natural habitat. As you find them you will be able to explain to the students about these animals with the information we provide. 45-60 min
Due to the current Covid-19 pandemic we are not doing personal guided tours, but several staff members will be around to answer any questions you may have.
Parking and Picnic
A large free car park is available just 150m away. There is a gravelled road from the car park to the entrance. All vehicles (especially buses) must park at this car park. There are multiple shaded picnic areas in the park which you can freely use.
