Welcome 2014

Happy New Year to you all, and here's wishing you all have a great 2014 from all of us at the Centre! I thought I would post a nice summery image to brighten the day during this very dull, wet and windy few days/weeks we are having.

2014 will be a big year for us with quite a few things happening. From now on we are open every weekend of the year! Most of you already know about our new aviaries being built, but we also have plans for a "Nature Trail" aimed at younger children, and hopefully able to be enjoyed by all ages...and after the delay from last year due to bad weather, we hope to be able to complete our "Kingfisher Bank" and finally build our new "Reptile Pens" for the other native species.

We are also now open every weekend of the year and will not be having our winter break, and still open local school holidays with school trips and photography days taking place during term times.

You will be able to keep up with all the news on this blog... I haven't forgotten about our little keeper post which will see the light at some point this month, and of course we still have two categories in the photo competition to announce the short listed entries.

Did you know we will now be open every weekend for 2014?.. This means an additional face will join the keeping team to help all year round, rather than just the summer period. There will be a change to the way we do our photo competition too. More will be announced in February, but it will be much more relaxed and accessible.

Oh, and I nearly forgot... remember... we are now



  1. Happy New Year to all at BWC, Keep up the good work.

  2. Are you open every weekend now?
