    There's a disappointing lack of info on this place on ZC, unless I'm missing something! I've been going there since May so if things are older than that then please forgive me.

    A female blue winged kookaburra is now on display in an old owl enclosure. No idea if she'll be in the displays at some point.

    The Siberian eagle owl has left the enclosure (off show?) and has been replaced by a female Euras6 eagle owl.

    The Tawny eagle is now tethered instead of being in an aviary, guessing he'll be in displays soon.

    An African hawk eagle has appeared from nowhere tethered near the other eagles.

    Breeding is all done for this year, a good few juveniles around including the white headed vultures.

    Flying today:
    Valley of the eagles:
    Barn owl
    Saker falcon
    6 hooded vultures
    2 turkey vultures
    9 black kites
    2 bald eagles

    Woodland owls:
    2 barn owls
    Tawny owl
    Eurasian eagle owl
    Great grey owl

    Visited again today, couldn't work out from the website whether the first display was going to be Wings of Africa (African themed display with a variety of species) or World of Birds of Prey (I bet you can't guess what that involves). Turned out to be WoA, which finish for the year at the end of October.

    A couple of things had moved around, nothing significant, and nothing new was out in an aviary. Guess nothing will really change until next spring in preparation for breeding.

    Flying today

    Wings of Africa:
    Milky eagle owl
    Secretary bird
    2 African white backed vultures
    3 African yellow billed kites
    2 white storks
    4 sacred ibis

    Valley of the Eagles:
    Juvenile (one year old) Egyptian vulture
    Peregrine falcon
    6 hooded vultures
    2 turkey vultures
    9 black kites
    Brahminy kite
    2 bald eagles
