    They are gorgeous creatures. I saw some last year when we visited the cotswolds, theres a bird sanctuary there, I was fascinated with them :-)))

  • Then these are the same guys – at Birdland!!! Aren’t they fast swimmers!?! ;o)

    Yes….they’re the ones at Bourton on the water. We went this time last year…but I was on my crutches at the time…lol. We’ll probably go again though. They have some fabulous birds there don’t they and gorgeous gift shops :-)))

  • Have you been to Birdworld near Farnham? They have some beautiful featherballs there too!
