Bird Land - The Land Of Birds

We left the house! That's right, we went outside. To Bourton-on-the-Water last Saturday to be precise. It's a lovely village in the Cotswolds with all the charm (and many ice cream shops) that keeps the tourists coming back for more. This was our second visit, after stumbling across it a couple of years ago on a random drive around. The pièce de résistance of the village (in my opinion) is Birdland - a slightly tired looking festival of our feathered friends. Their trump card though is the king penguins, which looked so majestic in the sunshine. Not to be missed though is the minor bird (a new addition that keeps shouting 'morning!!') and the 'big as a man's leg' trout. If that can't hold your attention - visit the model village to see a mini model version of the village (no surprises there then) that also contains the 9th wonder of the world (their claim) - a model village of the model village in the model village.
