tadpoles to tigers

There's no denying the weather has been glorious around here lately and yesterday, we made the most of it. Andy had his Monday off work and we headed out on a little family trip to Woodside Wildlife and Falconry Park in Lincolnshire.

This was our first visit but what a pleasant surprise it was. Charmingly set amongst a countryside setting, the park was beautifully kept, nicely laid out and anywhere with signage, as witty as this place had, has got to be worth a visit.

From tigers lounging in the shade to tadpoles finding their way in a pound, William was captivated by it all. It's certainly worth attending the Falconry Display and watching Feeding Time which starts at the Wolf Enclosure. They also have Meet the Lemurs and Reptile Handling; my poor husband was seriously not going anywhere near the later... anything to do with loose snakes makes him run a mile so we gave that one a miss for this visit.

School visits... always part of the hazards of day tripping on a weekday and normally a big headache but I was really impressed with how the park handles the school groups. It all seemed very organised and calm yet still fun for the kids.

As we were leaving, I spotted a sign for a Woodland Walk. Perfect for if you get there before opening time or fancy a wander at the end of your visit.

All in all, what a fantastic day we had and certainly on our list of places to revisit.
