This place is superb. We spent a whole afternoon here (two adults, no kids) and only left when it was closing because they made us. It's crammed full of large otter pens, each with their own little family of otters and has chickens, ducks, deer, wallabies, peacocks and other animals wandering around the place. The keepers run very interesting talks at feeding time when the otters dance and squeak for bits of fish and eggs and there are various other displays thorughout the day. We were charmed by a talk about a large owl (although I'm not sure that the keeper was too impressed when our attention was stolen by an Indian Running Duck hot-footing it past the group at high speed) and then went for a wander in the woodland area to see the deer and the wallabies up close. The only slight disappointment was the Scottish wildcat. Nothing anyone can say or do will ever convince me it wasn't just a tabby. Still, I fully intend to go back the next time I'm in the region!
