Flamingo Fiesta

29 Jun 2019 - 30 Jun 2019

Family weekend event

A weekend celebration for anyone who adores our much loved flamingos.

Last year was a big year for our Greater Flamingo flock. They doubled in numbers from twenty-five to forty-nine and moved home into our newly developed Wetland Discovery Area, where they reside in a splendid purpose-built habitat, illustrative of tropical lagoons more commonly found in southern Spain. Their glorious pink feathers and quirky social behaviour has made them firm favourites with our visitors of all ages.

Any child who comes dressed up as a flamingo on either day will receive half price admission!

If you love flamingos or know someone who does, join us for the last weekend in June to celebrate these beautiful and majestic species. We’ll have flamingo related activities and trails – more details will be announced soon.
