No jungle would complete without its fair share of insects to create a balanced eco system. Moreover, look deep into the waters, and you'll find they are home to a plethora of dazzling cold water fish. Tropical Birds - No tropical paradise would be complete without some of our brightly-coloured feathered friends. You'll be able to get up close and personal to birds you simply won't see in your garden. See how the different species interact and watch them being fed when you visit our jungle. 
Birds of Prey - Birds of Prey are another element of our tropical village. You might see some of these birds now and again in the wild, but rarely will you have the chance to see these majestic birds at close quarters. Learn more about their incredible capabilities at Lanchester Garden Centre.
