Spring is officially in the air at the Lake District Wildlife Park with the arrival of three rare farm yard babies. The park has now welcomed a trio of Golden Guernsey goat kids, Bagot Kids and Tamworth Piglets, marking the start of what is expected to be a busy and exciting birthing season.
Gerti the Guernsey Goat and her new kids are expected to be a fascination with families this Easter, as they keep warm undercover alongside the young piglets in a custom made outside space which will allow visitors to get up close to the recent newborns.
North Cumbria’s only wildlife park will also give guests the chance to pet their new male guinea pigs over the holiday season. The two additions are set to be bred with female Guinea Pigs, Quarts and Precious, to add to their muddle and allow children to watch and learn as they begin to develop.
As a result, the coming weeks are much anticipated at the Lake District Wildlife Park, with keepers also hoping to see the arrival of baby lemurs, young goslings, more goat kids and even young Zebu calves.
Park Manager Richard Robinson said: “We have great expectations for spring and have created a covered outdoor space which lets our visitors get up close to some of our animals.
“There’s nowhere else in Cumbria you could take a look at a tiny calf then look in the pen next door and see a goat that’s twice the size! It’s a fun place to visit all year round, but around Easter we think it’s extra special – you just don’t know what’s going to arrive next.”
