British wildlife – a photo tour

The British Wildlife Centre is one of my favourite places in the country. It’s like a small zoo focusing solely on British wildlife and everything in it lives in lovely open enclosures with naturalistic environments (the otters have about three lakes to play around in). It’s a fantastic place to visit, especially for people who’ve most likely only ever seen a badger or a fox as a roadside carcass. Here are some photos from yesterday’s trip:
