Birds of Paradise

Catching up on some more photos from our recent trip to Cornwall – Paradise Park in Hayle is a wildlife sanctuary with over 1000 birds, plus a few small mammals such as red pandas and otters.
Photographing some of them was a bit challenging due to the fact that most of the birds are behind wire fencing, but here are a few that I did manage to get.

Visitors are allowed into the aviary and can feed them with cups of “nectar”.
