    When I last went to Pensthorpe (in August 2014), they didn't have demoiselle cranes but did have both Eastern grey crowned and Florida sandhill cranes, together with the white-naped, Eurasian, red-crowned and blue cranes.

    Flamingo Land- they only have Grey Crowned Cranes now.

    EDIT: I forgot earlier they also have Demoiselle cranes.

    I don't remember seeing demoiselle at Paignton but the others are all present and correct.

    It is worth clarifying, to prevent anyone making incorrect edits to ZTL, that the collection *does* hold the other taxa listed but off-display.

    Actually red-crowned, blue and demoiselle (unless they've moved out of the aviary by the cafe recently) are all on show.

    I think the sign saying they are in the "Parrotsphere" is still there, but the birds went to another collection (maybe Lotherton - I haven't been there for about three years when it had three Crowned Cranes) some time ago - they were a sibling pair and I believe were a bit of a nuisance at times where the parrots were concerned.

    As Macaw16 says the zoo does have Demoiselle Cranes, which are in the aviary in the Lost Kingdom. The Sarus Cranes were usurped by Red Pandas - a poor swap in my opinion.
