Had a great day out today with my family and the BDS Wessex Branch visiting the New Forest Wildlife Park.

So first thanks go to Dorothy Ireland who runs the Wessex Branch

Halfway round the tour i got talking to the owner/manager who was doing a great job looking after the 25 of us , who turned out to be Sticks off this site..

If you fancy a great family day out or an amazing photo opportunity or both its definately worth a visit

The muntjac couldnt have timed the barking better as we approached their pen

The free wandering fallow deer literally walk up and nudge you for attention rifling any open bags for food, and the wolves and boar had my little fella spell bound

Top day out, with heaps to see so many thanks again to the BDS and to Sticks who was a pleasure to meet and for showing us round


The BDS annual venison evening is coming up on the 3rd September at Owls Barn Farm Sopley which again is a great family event..
