With spring just around the corner the Bourton-on-the-Water wildlife attraction is welcoming a host of new birds.

Among the new feathered arrivals are a female crowned crane, a hamerkop, a male blacksmith plover, a Madagascan teal and a pair of blue bellied rollers which will all move into the park’s new ‘Out of Africa’ feature.

Handsome monkey with GSOH seeks a match this Valentine’s Day

Honest, bubbly and an all-round nice monkey Maarten is looking for love in the form of an adoption at Drusillas Park this Valentine’s Day.

As one of the only animals at the park without an adopter, keepers have put the 6-year-old Colobus monkey in the local lonely hearts column to find him a perfect match. 

Head Keeper, Sophie Leadbitter, said: “Obviously Maarten is loved by his keepers and visitors alike, but it’s heart-breaking for us to see his empty adoption plaque outside his enclosure every day.”
