A HOODED vulture named Gonzo and alpacas from Lacey Green were just some of the attractions at a burial park at the weekend.

The Greenacres Woodland Burials in Jordans held a Working Woodland Day to celebrate the woodland and wildlife of the Chiltern countryside.

Hundreds of people visited the park on Saturday, where they could watch heavy horse logging, build a den in the woods, have their face painted and more.

It is an annual event but this year they had some new exhibits.

Events coordinator, Rachel Constable, said they were pleased to welcome The Alpaca Farm, which is based in Lacey Green.

She said: "The alpacas were a real draw for us. They were really beautiful.

"I was having a chat with Liz Eagles, one of the owners of the alpacas farm. She said they work really well in the Chiltern countryside as it suits them."

They breed the animals and sell their wool.

June Kingsbury, a local artist, was also there to help children make clay birds.

Steve Woodley, known as the axe man, showed off his skills, while birds from The Imperial Bird of Prey Academy in Essex were also in attendance.

Mrs Constable said: "We also have other special events designed for families.

"We are a burial park but we are also a living woodland.

"We are really keen for people to come and visit the park and not feel at all nervous or uncomfortable because it is a burial park."
