West Midlands Safari Park was our trip out today, with a picnic on board and safely locked in our mini bus we took a drive through the safari park.  One lion was so close we could almost touch him.    We saw the famous white lions along with tigers and elephants.  Pingu the penguin was very interested in the black and white bows on Ailsa's shoes.   John attracted all the colourful birds in the tropical bird house.  We even went through the bat house but we couldn't see anything!!!
