Today Monkey and I picked up my eldest niece and off we went, wellies on foot to the Water Fowl Sanctuary and Children's Farm to see what we could find.
We started off inside being introduced to some of the newest members of the sanctuary ....
bunny, chick, gerbil and duckling
Then off we went to explore outside. We saw lots of ducks, geese, peacocks and peahens, loads of different breeds of chickens and cockerels, sheep, goats, pigs and little ponies and more besides.
It was very muddy so wellies for Monkey were a must, and off he went, happily exploring with us in tow.
There was a children's play area and picnic benches (for better weather!) and animals everywhere you looked.
I felt that the whole place was a little 'tired' and in need of a tidy and freshen up. There was limited information on the animals although you could see that at one time there had been lots of information areas. Compared to other small farms we've visited this was definately lacking in the finishing touches but having said all that, Monkey had a great time and really enjoyed the experience. So, as far as he was concerned it was money well spent.
