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 !
