Fantasy author and creator of the Discworld series, Sir Terry Pratchett has always attracted some weird and wonderful tributes - in life and since Death found his way to his door in 2015...

This spring, Farnham’s Birdworld has launched the Terry Pratchett Owl Parliament in collaboration with the World Owl Trust.

Named in honour of Sir Terry, due to his love of wildlife and passion for these mysterious birds of prey, the new exhibit incorporates elements from his Discworld books.

Birdworld is also set to host a Discworld Day on Friday April 28, with special guests including key Terry Pratchett collaborators Rob Wilkins and Stephen Briggs.

Already one of the largest bird parks in the country, the 26 acres of landscaped park and gardens are home to over 800 birds and 180 species from around the world.

Birdworld is also home to the Underwater World aquarium and the Jenny Wren Farm.
