Birds

The Cotswold Wildlife Park has long been renowned for its bird collection.

We currently house 93 species ranging in size to the largest bird of all, the Ostrich. We were the first UK zoo to breed the Great hornbill and have had other notable successes over the years with Black storks and Penguins amongst many others.
