      I can confirm that this facility is now open. We attended on Saturday 16th and it was all open and was reasonably busy mid afternoon when we were there. There are pots of nectar to buy (£1 per small pot 1/4 full) at certain times of the day and the Lorikeets fly or climb onto peoples arms/fingers and drink the contents. A nice little attraction that all though not included in admission price is a nice treat for kids (or big kids) that wont break the bank.(The enclosure is free to get in if you just want to see the lorikeets or supervise the nectar purchasers):)
      I will put some photos of the interior soon.

      When after a while the Lorikeets get so fat they can't eat any more nectar, don't fly on people anymore and it has to be disbanded, they could turn it into a Giraffe House....

      Good thinking Batman!

      It would be if it was high enough which I don't think this is!
