Penguins get a new home in the Cotswolds


Penguins at Birdland

A stunning new penguin enclosure has been unveiled at one of the top visitor attractions in the Cotswolds!

Birdland Park & Gardens celebrate the opening of the enclosure and the intake of several new residents as part of their Penguin Week during May half term (May 28-June 5).

Birdland have already welcomed 13 African penguins to the park from Bristol Zoo, with a further 20 due to arrive later in the year.

The enclosure’s redevelopment work has seen the area completely transformed with a sleepy fishing village backdrop. The above and below water viewing areas of Penguin Shore have also been updated new brand-new glass.

Birdland already has some celebrity penguins in its ranks, including Spike, who has his own popular social media presence after appearing in an advert for biscuits and on TV with Sir David Attenborough.

Seth, who was born in 1985, is the oldest male king penguin in Europe, Asia or Australia. He starred in blockbuster film Batman Returns, alongside the likes of Hollywood royalty such as Danny De Vito, Michael Keaton and Michelle Pfeiffer.
