Museum portraits

I had a short visit to the Natural History Museum in Oxford this week. It is full of amazing specimens and is a treasure trove of interest.

I particularly liked the four birds below and took their portraits.

Number one- the Kiwi

Flightless birds with a great sense of smell

Number two -the Albatross

These birds can weigh 12kg and have the longest wingspan of 11 ft

Number three- the shoebill

Found in East African swamps hunting fish and baby crocodiles.

And finally number four- the Kakapo

This is the largest and flightless parrot.

There is always something new to discover at this museum, even on a flying visit !
