A few weeks ago I finally got myself a new camera (Canon 5D MkII) and it coincided quite nicely with a trip to Canon Hill Park Nature Centre. This little gem is nestled not far from Birmingham City Centre but feels a million miles away from the hustle and bustle of a sprawling metropolis.

It has a nice mixture of animals that seem very happy and it costs very little to get in. I didn't spend too long taking pictures as I always get told off for neglecting the other half so here are a few 'snaps'.

If you like them let me know.....thanks


It wasnt just the animals that were lovely the grounds are well cared for and very pretty

On the Sunday we visited there was a tortoise drop in clinic (I kid you not!) which lead to this sign being placed on the cafe door.

On the way home we stopped off at Manic Organic Cafe in Kings Heath and had an amazing veggie breakfast with the best toast ever. Well worth a visit!!
