Chicks come early at Birds of Prey Centre

First published in News

THIS fluffy little chick may have arrived a little early but is cracking on well.

The Grey Buzzard Eagle hatched on Saturday with a sibling following the next evening at the International Centre for Birds of Prey in Newent. Both are doing well after initial concerns that the parents had laid early in the cold winter months.

The eggs were removed and the parents left with dummy eggs until the chicks are strong enough to be returned to them.

Although they are called eagles, they are the largest buzzards in the world originating from South America and are related to the UK’s common buzzard.
