New life in abundance at Seaview Wildlife Encounter!
Spring leads into summer … and new life at the Park is still in abundance! We have lots of youngsters at this time of year – the second brood of chicks are hatching under many of our ducks and wildfowl.
Above left: A heap of Barnacle Goslings (Branta leucopsis). Above right: two parent birds guarding their ground nest on the open, central area of the Park.
Above: Three rather gorgeous young Shelduck ducklings (Tadorna tadorna) are being raised by the Keeper Team until they’re old enough to be released onto one of the Park’s lakes.
