We’re getting egg-cited!

There’s plenty of egg-citement at DZG as we get ready Easter – and for the patter of tiny feet.

Trainee Keeper Chris Leeson, pictured left, has added several eggs to an incubator and is awaiting the arrival of new chicks just in time for Easter.

Senior Keeper Lesley Lewis said: “It will be wonderful for our visitors to get to see new little chicks during the school holidays.

“We’ve also got lots of craft activities planned to tie in with Easter so everyone should have a really cracking time!”

There’s also our annual Easter Bunny Trail around the zoo site where youngsters can spot eight bunny pictures around the site, with the chance to win a prize.

The new Courtyard Café, formerly known as the Grey Lady Tavern and Tearoom, will be open for business serving a range of snacks and afternoon teas.

And the Oak Kitchen at the Queen Mary is serving up a tasty promotion – a delicious hot cross bun and a large tea or coffee for £3.55.

There’s colouring fun too at the restaurant when visitors can design their own Easter egg.
