Our flamingos will be out between 10.30am and 3pm throughout the winter. During adverse weather, we may need to pop them away - please call the centre after 9.30am to check they are out before your visit.


Ganderland is home to some of the rarest waterbirds on the planet and many will eat straight from your hand!

Visitors can buy bags of corn from the centre before getting nose-to-beak with species including the gentle Hawaiian goose or ‘nene’; an ideal bird for children to interact with.

Every penny spent goes back into supporting our vital conservation work, including the specialist breeding programmes that are helping to save the same endangered species you’re feeding.

A handy hint – if the birds are a bit shy then crouch down to their level before offering them food. You’ll look a bit more approachable if you’re more their size!
