Melvin Updates

We knew when we took him in that Melvin would need to stay with us permanently as he cannot fly at all. He gets around well in our aviary where we have arranged branches and ladders to help him get about. He is quite a friendly chap and is often waiting at the door of the aviary for his breakfast! If you would like to sponsor Melvin’s care you can find out how here.

Melvin has bonded with new arrival Leia

Melvin and Leia have been sitting on an egg for us and today it has hatched! You can follow their baby’s progress here
