Join in the ‘Eggstravaganza’ at Birdworld this Easter!

March 20, 2017

Join the festivities at Birdworld near Farnham, Surrey this Easter by taking part in the great annual Birdworld Easter Egg hunts.

Running all day on both Wednesday 5th and Wednesday 19th April, children and adults alike can look forward to exploring the ‘eggstra’ special themed trail, where they’ll discover lots of fun facts about birds and their beautiful eggs.

Whilst visitors crack the trail’s clues set by the Easter Bunny and enjoy the opportunity to join in with some Easter-themed crafts, they will also have the chance to see the park’s very own Percy the Penguin who will be helping out throughout the day.

Easter will also see the return of Birdworld’s popular Pirate Activity Week, where between Monday 10th and Thursday 13th April the park will be calling all pirates and explorers alike to join in with some swashbuckling fun and games. Special prizes will be awarded throughout the week for the best fancy dress and of course, the best pirate impressions.

Regular feeding sessions and displays hosted by the keepers throughout the day will also give visitors the chance to learn more about the species up close as well as the opportunity to ask questions and be a part of the bird’s daily routine.

As one of the largest bird parks in the country, the 26 acres of landscaped park and gardens are home to over 800 birds and 180 species from around the world. Popular exhibits include Penguin Island, Flamingo Cove and the Seashore Walk. And if that wasn’t enough, the mysterious Underwater World also awaits with its shoal of piranhas and dwarf crocodiles.

The Jenny Wren children’s farm is always a big hit, particularly with younger visitors in the spring time as in addition to the traditional goats, pigs, chickens and sheep with their newborn babies there is also a huge variety of other animals such as guinea pigs, rabbits, mice and ferrets, many of which can be stroked during the daily ‘Animal Encounter’ sessions.

This spring, Birdworld has also launched its brand new exhibit, the Terry Pratchett Owl Parliament. Open fully for the Easter Holidays, the impressive new exhibition has been named in honour of the brilliant author, Sir Terry Pratchett due to his well-known love of wildlife and in particular, all species of owl. Created in collaboration with the World Owl Trust (WOT), the satellite exhibit will aim to educate and raise awareness of these amazing birds.

Mark Anderson, Park General Manager at Birdworld, said: “We are looking forward to welcoming our Easter visitors to what we’re sure will be another great fortnight of fun. Many of the species here at Birdworld, lay and hatch their eggs in amazing ways and along with the new arrivals born at the Jenny Wren farm this year, we’re hoping to prove that there’s more to Easter than just chocolate eggs! With our Pirate Activity Week and the launch of our brand new exhibit, the Terry Pratchett Owl Parliament on too – there will be something for everyone at Birdworld this Easter.”
