Animals of all shapes and sizes form a fundamental picture of my childhood.  They fill my memories.  Whether it be watching Guru Gramps catching dragonflies, looking at our rabbits and playing with our cats.  There is one species of bird above all other, that will forever remind me of my childhood.  I’ve mentioned our macaws on posts before.  How many people can say that they had two macaws in their aviary as a child?  I’ve always loved them, they’ve always fascinated me.  It’s another love I’ve shared with Monkey, and we always visit them at any zoo we go to.

But at Whipsnade Zoo we get a special treat whenever we visit.  We get to watch the macaws soaring above us, showing off their colourful plumage.  Beautiful, graceful birds.

I will always watch these birds in awe, to me there are just so very special.  Do you have a favourite bird?

We have a cat called Brewster who makes appearances and I’m a mad Ferrari Formula 1 fan, so that expect to hear about as each season unfolds. We love reviewing days out, toys, games and books and would love the opportunity to look at anything that fits in with our family lifestyle. We are always out and about and offering an insight on the places we visit, with a passion for nature thrown in for good measure.

  1. I love macaws and both our local zoos have them in open enclosures so you can get very close to them. And they are big aren’t they? How fabulous to have them as pets when you were a child. We had the normal dogs and cats and my parents had horses but a macaw or two would have been great. #MySundayPhoto
