      i heared they were on about moving jaguars, tigers or leopards here?
    • toucanwalk
      Very pleasing to the eye but not an area were eggs are likely to be laid any time soon.
      It would be a good flamingo lake if perhaps some of the vegetation was taken out,mirrors put up and more mud areas were added are the birds allowed to stay out all night?

      There is no predator protection for this enclosure , so I think the group of male Flamingos are shut in the tiny shed visible in the picture at night .

      @Bele I suppose you are joking? - I can´t imagine they would shut their flamingos into that "toilet house" for +12 hours a day. But all in all, just another substandard flamingo holding.

      @arthur It looks like you really believe in adding mirrors into flamingo enclosures. I admit it´s a nice PR stuff but I´m still to see any hard evidence that it really makes any difference to them. I don´t want to say it hurts the birds. But I ´m a little bit affraid that with moving some mirrors in some managers will see their duty to ensure an "acceptable good life" to their flamingos as fullfilled, instead to allow them to live in large enough groups. It´s a "cheap solution" without solving the problem.

      if they shut them away as well and its not predator proof then no way will they lay eggs. also they need to cut it all back a bit cause if somthing was to frighten the flamingos they could easliy get caught in tht vegation

      Why else would the shed be there ! I assume they enter it without being chased around the enclosure .

      They are highly unlikely to lay eggs if they are all male !
    • Jana
      I´ve thought it could be a shed to store feed, tools, sprinkle hose or such things... Thanks for a correction.

      Do you know how it came that Manor House houses just 5? male Chileans here? Is it just a surviving rest of a much bigger group? Are there plans to change it?
