Birds at Paignton Zoo.

Hi, Last wek Sue and i had a stroll around Paignton Zoo (its 11 miles from us). The day we picked was overcast with a little bit of Sun.


Before going much further i should probably admit that Sue took 90% of the pictures today.


As Sue was walking around she was clicking away merrily so i didn’t manage to keep notes to each Bird. Maybe a quiz for all you clever foreign Bird watchers.

Well done Sue, I nice range of pics.

OK let's have a try- the 1st is a DUCK and the last in NOT. That's about as close as I can normally get.

More pics please.
