Christmas Spotting With The Orkney News!

By Bernie Bell

It’s December – time to start Christmas Spotting!  And you could start at Fern Valley Wildlife Centre, which is still open at weekends.   The tearoom is open to the public, whether you want to visit the animals, or not – I’d advise visiting the animals, too –  but I am biased!

In the tearoom, we spotted a seasonal confection created by Karen – a gingerbread house, with a chocolate button roof, and a peedie smartie shed.

It’s all edible – even the windows!

We’d had a walk at Evie sands, got thoroughly frozen, so headed for Fern Valley  for warmth, great views, and being watched by a lemur……

…. while I ate a snowman!  Another bit of Christmas Spotting.  The cakes had a generally Christmassy theme, with sugar swirly sticks round the chocolate cake, icing snowflakes on the strawberry cake, and….edible snowmen!

Holidays are coming, holidays are coming………….

I just thought – folk could adopt an animal at Fern Valley, as a Christmas present for an animal-loving family member or friend?
