Just in time for the summer holidays several stunning new butterflies and tropical birds have taken up residence at the Stratford Butterfly Farm. After months of careful sourcing the Butterfly Farm has introduced a number of butterfly species that have seldom been on display before. These include the ‘Dero Clearwing’, which comes from the rainforests of Columbia, the ‘Procilla Beauty’, which originates from Costa Rica and the ‘Blue Pansy’, which comes from Thailand.
There are also two new ‘Kakarikis’, two ‘Diamond Doves’, two ‘Java Sparrows’ and two ‘Rosy Bourkes’. These vibrant birds, originate from New Zealand, Australia and Indonesia, are also very mischievous!
As well as seeing the new arrivals, children and adults can also take part in the popular Meet the Mini-Beast handling sessions each day at 11.30am and 2.30pm from 20 July – 1 September. Visitors can hold a giant African Millipede, African land snail, Stick Insects and even a Madagascan hissing cockroach! There will also be Beetle, Tailless Whip Scorpion and Chilean Rose Tarantula demonstrations in the Discovery Zone.
For visitors wanting to enjoy a range of hot drinks, milkshakes and snacks, the Koffee Kart is open for service in the front wildflower garden. The Kart is open at weekends, bank holidays and school holidays from 10am - 4pm.
