    It’s been a while since there was any news out of Wild Place. Any updates, especially on what might be replacing the Wolves in their current enclosure?

    Pretty sure that the old Wolf paddock is basically the ending of Bear Wood and that this is the paddock where the Wolverines will be in, as you walk down the hill into Bear wood from this way, you'll then come to the Lynx on your right before the Bears and then the wolves which will be in the first wooded section after the Gelada.

    On the opposite side will be a large wooded section, which I believe will be a rotated Brown Bear and Wolf paddock, with tunnel access from each of the smaller paddocks with housing they have, so you'll be able to either see them in the paddocks by their housing or in the larger wooded paddock.

    There was talk at one stage of Red Deer or Elk but that doesn't appear to have transpired.

    The only other news to mention is that weavers (Ploceus melanocephalus I believe) have joined the dik dik etc.

    68 Weavers in total. Quite a sizeable colony!
