Whipsnade – On Reflection

So difficult to resist the pun.

Pretty flamingos

The thing that has always puzzled me about flamingos,

How do they do that?

is how can they stand on one leg for so long, without falling over.

Whipsnade’s formation filter feeding team

At Whipsnade they share their enclosure with this noisy chap.

Southern Screamer

The southern screamer is from central south America. They live in large flocks eating mostly vegetable matter with the odd small creature thrown in. I had never seen one before our trip to Whipsnade and probably would not have noticed him if it hadn’t been for the unholy din he was making. A very aptly named bird.
