      Maybe a lake might help as well....?

      Or a field trip to Stonehenge (judging from the arrangement of mirrors)

      I understand why they place mirrors with Flamingoes, wondering if it has ever been shown to actually have a measurable impact on reproduction?

      Indeed, this happens to be one of the few shots when you don't see the large pond that fills the centre of their enclosure. Talk about books and their covers... :rolleyes:

      But given they like standing on the other side of them I reckon they might be teasing the keepers for a while yet! :p

      Over the year,s including my time as a keeper at Marwell, various things have been tried to get them to bred, but we still trying,
    • kiang
      Putting them in an aviary might help

      Well it worked at the Welsh Mountain Zoo,but it took a few years until the first breeding!
