Donut Flight Aviary at Olomouc 30/05/10

Home to vultures, storks, cranes and kites, among others. The 'donut' shape allows (and encourages) birds to fly continuously. With Primate House in the background.

      What a clever design - I wonder why I have never seen that anywhere else?

      I suspect a simple hemisphere is cheaper to build. The kites in particular seemed to enjoy the 'donut', with several long flights round and round. It's a great aviary.

      So good to finally see a zoo give doughnuts the space they really need for flight!
