Autumn Hatchings!

Some of our resident and semi-resident birds (we have many avian species that come and go as they please!) are still hatching out young chicks. Other than broody hens on their clutches we've had 3 broods of Muscovy ducklings hatching out this week - this photo shows one of the proud Muscovy Mums! Fortunately there's plenty of shelter and food available here at the Park for the new arrivals to have a good chance of survival as we move towards the colder winter months.
