TWYCROSS Zoo has added a whopping 576 sq m enclosure for it's new 'Lorikeet Landing' exhibit.

The enclosure will be the new home to 39 rainbow lorikeets, a colourful parrot native to Australasia.

Visitors will have the unique opportunity to feed the birds by hand as they walk through with pots of nectar.

Dr Charlotte Macdonald, head of life sciences at the attraction near Burton, said: "We are delighted to have rainbow lorikeets here as they are a very engaging, lively species.

"The nature of the exhibit is designed to inspire visitors to learn more about birds and their importance across the globe."
