Taken 9th July 2015 This is a Circular building with Aviaries all around like this with quite a few parrot species. There is also another large building which is the lorikeet house and there is a row of parrot aviaries between these two buildings. All areas contain fantastic species and I will provide a species list of any of these areas if anyone is interested (I have pictures of all signage in the zoo and notes for any unsigned species seen so I can provide full on-show species lists for any and all areas of the zoo if anyone wants me too but it is a faff if no one is interested)
