On the way home from Bournemouth after our lovely time in the sun, we stopped off at a Wildlife park in Southampton – the New Forest Wildlife Park.

New Forest Wildlife Park - Wandering around

The main reason we wanted to go was to see owls and otters, and we certinaly weren’t disappointed!

The otters were a highlight though. There were 7 little guys in this one in enclosure (they were all quite young) and they were continually crying and mewling up until feeding time. They were adorable!

While we were mostly there to see owls and otters, but there was also a marvelous Butterfly House!

An unexpected surprise was a litter of 6 badgers that were at the park. Because they’re nocturnal creatures, they were crashed out in a pile. They looked like a litter of dog puppies and were super cute! 🙂

We had a great weekend out with Miss in Bournemouth and at the park. So great to be able to see her so often these days and reconnect properly.
