Phew Missed Us!!!

The threatened severe weather has skated right on past us, a little bit of lady luck is all you need, we didnt get an inch, just the slightest of flurrys that sat on the ice making the lakes look nice but caused no problems whatsoever. Temperatures lifted to +1 degrees on out gauges and although not warm has meant the entire water system around the zoo all thawed within hours, and that also means human heating and buildings can be reduced, animal / bird heating will stay on for a few weeks yet so the meters wont slow down all that much just yet…

A little sad news and that is we lost one of the Orange Winged Amazons today, Jaffa has been with us for 8 years and was an imported parrot, no one could actually tell his age but hes had a good old life here living with the colony of OWAs 🙁

Our machinery however is still stuck to the floor as the ground temperatures stays low so everything has had to be moved by hand today, well it kept us warm…

Simon is now on his own oh sorry thats the Canada Goose thats been on the lakes for a couple of years now, well with him being on his own and the lake having a thin layer of ice, I take his food out and put him big piles around making sure he gets plenty.
