Flamingo doing well



The Greater Flamingo is doing well now after his shockingly traumatic experience. Lynettea took this photo for me on 17th November. I have only just managed to get it to put on my blog. If I didn't take some initiative I would get no photos at all.
He is back in his pond with his faithful companion and you can see them standing together in the picture below.
Lynettea tells me he is eating well again and is standing up near the public at the front of his enclosure. Only a little hedge divides the
lawn you see in the
photo from the passing zoo visitors. Some people think he may not be standing quite as close. The Zoo Volunteers have been standing guard near his enclosure watching his every move to check how he is doing and also see that no-one interferes with him.

That's great news to see that he's recovering well from his ordeal. It's nice how the two birds get to hang out together and keep each other company. We're so glad that he's being well looked after by the Zoo Volunteers and staff,

Oh! I'm sorry I haven't visited for so long and now I'm here, I'm appalled (as I am so often) at the mindless cruelty of some humans. Poor old flamingo. I'm glad he's recovering, but my eyes are leaky for his suffering. So many lovely animals put their trust in us, only to be abused! xxx

Thank you my dear friends for your concern for the Greater Flamingo. It is lovely to see you here and I am sorry I couldn't put your comments on earlier. Sometimes I am at the mercy of Lynettea and cannot get onto the computer for days. I notice that a few of you post every day. I wish I was so lucky!
