A POPULAR attraction in Bourton has welcomed new arrivals in time for Easter.

Five tortoises and three emus have just landed and are ready to join the Birdland family.

The five male Sulcata tortoises, which are the World’s third largest species, can easily live for more than 100 years.

Awaiting to be named, the boys are currently hanging out with the birds in the undercover aviary while they wait for the weather to get warmer and can move into their outdoor summer pad.

Meanwhile, the three emus are the second largest species of bird in the world, and it is the first time they have ever been residents at Birdland.

Keepers are excited to have the eight new arrivals on site and are looking forward to naming the birds and tortoises with some help from their fans.

Visitors can keep an eye of their Facebook and Twitter pages to join in the naming fun.

Birdland is open from 10am until 5pm daily with penguin feeding at 11am and 2.30pm.
