What's On

Autumn is one of the best times to see our deer roaming in the paddocks, including this year's youngsters as we prepare them for release. The foxes can often be seen making the most of sunny afternoons to lounge and show off the start of their beautiful winter coats.

This is also when we see an increase in small hedgehogs coming through our doors. Many of these youngsters will have got into difficulty whilst trying to fend for themselves away from mum. We are happy to be here to offer them a safe haven whilst we get them ready for life back in the wild.

Things to do and see

Abby Hedgehog Talks – a chance to get up close and learn about these wonderful little mammals.  Talks held daily (times may vary).
Skeleton X-Ray Skeleton Exhibition – Our Orthopaedic suite has a live feed to our x-ray machine along with lots of amazing wildlife skeletons on display; everything from a tiny bat to a mute swan and muntjac deer!
Gift Shop Gift Shop – Lots of lovely gifts are available to buy, with all profits going towards the lifesaving work of the hospital.
Red Kite Red Kite Flight Aviaries & Education Centre – A great opportunity to see these majestic birds. You will learn all about our experiences and encounters with these magnificent flyers since their return from the brink of extinction in the UK in the early nineties.
Baby Birds Viewing Windows into the Hospital – Take a peek into our mammal and baby bird nurseries, where you will see just some of the patients in our care. The animals you can see will vary, depending on the time of year – see our ‘What’s On’ section for more information.
