If you’re ever stuck for something to do, indeed, even if you’re not, then you should hotfoot it to deepest darkest Lincolnshire and visit The Parrot Zoo.
That’s what Cat, Rich and I did last weekend to spend a day doing a ‘parrot experience’ – basically shadowing Neil, one of the zoo keepers, and generally probably not being much use in helping feed the almost-two-thousand parrots resident at the zoo.
It was ace. Just as a regular visitor I would’ve love it, but to get in the aviaries with the birds was great, and having Macaws, African Greys, Amazons, Cockatoos, Senegals, Caiques and the slightly-more-familiar-to-us cockatiels clambering over us was brilliant!
So if you’re stuck for something to do this coming bank holiday, then that’s what you should do – well worth it, and you could always take in the splendour of Skegness afterwards!
