Penryn Camera Club

This week the Penryn Camera Club met at Paradise Park bright and early, well 10.30 am! The park is home to a plethora of birds, all sorts of colours and breeds, and such a wonderful assortment.

We were all thrilled by the Bird of Prey show - the birds looked in beautiful condition, and the keepers were very mindful of the hot weather conditions, so they kept the flights short for each bird. There was a Bald Headed Eagle, a type of Kookaburra stunning!

The park itself has lovely tropical plants, and the parrots fly freely through the trees, making a terrible squawking noise. Worse than the seagulls! Lots of vibrantly coloured flowers to enjoy too.

The highlight of the day was the Lorikeet feeding. These small, brightly coloured birds are addicted to the nectar they put in the pots. At £1.25 for a tiny amount, they must be the most expensive birds to keep! It was good fun when they landed on your head!
