The Last Days Of Tropical Wings
Tropical Wings opened as a Butterfly House with a couple of bird cages out the back, but it was enough to entrance my offspring back at the turn of the millenium. Our many visits since have allowed us to watch it gradually swell into a proper zoo, with displays and events that encouraged visitors to interact with the furred and feathered residents.
Due to ill-health, the zoo's owners - who live at the site - made the difficult decision to close the zoo at the start of December. Consequently, we paid it a final visit.
