BBC News!Last month brought with it numerous births and lambing season began today with our first single lamb being born. We now have 11 goat kids bouncing around which consist of 4 sets of twins and one set of triplets! One of the goat kids, now called Annabelle, had been rejected by her mother and is now being bottle fed by our staff. You can meet her in the small animal barn where you can find her cuddling up with the chicks! All of the others are doing fine and are being kept under shelter in the passageway for a few weeks before being let out with the rest of the tribe. We also had a new macho (male) lama cria born last week and there are lots of chicks hatching, next batch on 12th March. Keep up to date on new arrivals and additions by ‘liking’ our Facebook page.
Our prairie dogs gained stardom a few weeks ago staring on the BBC News and also a few newspapers. The story was regarding a voluntary agreement between East Links and Scottish National Heritage to control invasive non-native species in Scotland. We built them a new enclosure to ensure that they will be kept within the boundaries of the park. They are enjoying their new enclosure and all the extra attention they are getting after their TV appearance.
Work is continuing on our 18 Hole Crazy Golf attraction which will be open Spring 2015. All eighteen holes have been made, obstacles made/painted and the turf has just arrived. Located in and around our pond it will include lots of farm themed holes, bridges, obstacles and will give kids a chance to teach parents a trick or two.
The next big event at East Links will be our Massive Annual Easter Egg Hunt which will take place 3rd to 6th April. Hundreds of eggs are hidden each day out in the park which can be exchanged for a chocolate one. Watch out for the golden eggs!
East Links Membership cards and Family Ticket vouchers are available all year round and make great birthday presents. If you visit the park more than 4 times a year, ask about our yearly membership.
