One of the most serene places at Barleylands is our vast walk-through bird aviary. Inside you’ll discover some of the most popular pet birds but in a more natural setting. Canaries flit amongst the bushes, whilst diamond doves dance on the gravel path. Sometimes there is only the whir of a Java finch’s wing to be heard, whilst the zebra-finches’ song is bright and bubbly.
Amongst the foliage, our birds are allowed to nest and rear their young, so you might even be lucky enough to spot babies being fed or even hopping over the grass. Download one of our charts and spend a little time bird-watching. How many can you find?
