    In 2014 Colchester Zoo opened an aviary of Australian Rainbow Lorikeets. Not only can you walk into the aviary to see the lorikeets you can also feed them. This has been something I have wanted to do since the aviary opened. No matter how many times we have visited the zoo we still haven’t fed the Lorikeets. Little did I know that on our recent trip to Drusillas Park my dream of Feeding Lorikeets would come true! Lory Landing Lory Landing is one of the three walk-through enclosures that you can visit at Drusillas Park. I didn’t know that they had an aviary of lorikeets at Drusillas. I was pleasantly…

    We have visited Drusillas Park once before when Ethan was very young. In the Easter holidays, we were invited to visit so that we could see their new Rainforest Carousel.

We also knew that Little E wouldn’t want to miss out on a visit to the Hello Kitty Secret Garden! The Animals At Drusillas Park There are over 100 different species of animals to see at Dursillas. These include snakes, monkeys, lemurs, gibbons, meerkats, foxes, servals, porcupines, fruit bats, sloths, penguins, owls, flamingos, beavers, otters, anteaters, wallabies, and lorikeets.

    During our visit to Thomas Land in the Easter Holidays Ethan surprised us with an achievement. It happened at Terence’s Driving School where Ethan decided to show us that he was very confident at driving his own tractor. Terence’s Driving School When we queued up for Terence’s Driving School I was only thinking about putting Little E on this ride. She had proved her ride-on driving skills over the past year during visits to Legoland, Center Parcs and Diggerland. As it was so quiet I decided to ask Ethan if he wanted to drive a tractor knowing that I would ask for him to have support. The ride attendant was…
