Keeper photo - here is a first photo of a new arrival... A Von der Deckens Hornbill chick has just fledged its nest, watched by its dad (with the orange bill). This species keeps its chicks safe by using mud to seal all but a small gap of the nest entrance closed. The female stays inside fed by her mate as she lays, incubates and hatches eggs. Eventually she breaks out and the chicks emerge so we can see them, fully feathered and looking beautiful!

We are delighted to be giving a home to a beautiful Golden Eagle which did not have the best start in life.
Keeper Sarah-Jayne Cooke explains “For the first few years of her life, Talis was kept in a kitchen in terrible dirty conditions, totally unsuitable for any animal, let alone a Golden Eagle, not able to spread her wings and fly. Thankfully, the RSPCA stepped in and the owner was charged and disqualified from keeping animals for 10 years. Talis was already imprinted on humans and used to being on the hand, and after being seized she was placed with the Hawk Conservancy, and then with a specialist private carer until a forever home could be found.
We believe she is around 4 to 5 years old, and she has already settled in very well here at the Park. We are currently training her so she can fly free and join the summer ‘Eagles of Paradise Display’.”

We would like to say THANK YOU!

This photograph is of Paradise Park Curator David Woolcock and the lovely Tangee, a Palm-nut Vulture.

Tangee flies in the 12noon 'Eagles of Paradise Display' and helps raise awareness and vital funds for the International Vulture Programme, run by the Hawk Conservancy Trust in Hampshire, which focuses efforts on the research and conservation of seven vulture species.

Poisoning is the biggest threat to vultures in Africa and is associated with ivory poaching, which accounts for one third of all vulture poisonings since 1970, and is now the biggest cause of vulture mortality. Poisoning often relates directly to the illegal trade in wildlife, either through the trade in vultures and vulture parts, or deliberate killing of vultures to disguise illegal poaching. Ivory poachers poison and kill vultures because their presence above a poached carcass can attract the attention of law enforcement agents.

With the fantastic support of Paradise Park visitors, this August we have been able to donate £4,940, which has made an immediate difference, paying for training courses for field staff (trainers, travel, catering) and Poison Response Kits (PRKs) in a high risk area of Zambia.

Look out for more posts tomorrow as part of International Vulture Awareness Day, 1st September.
