Charlie’s castle checks

DZG’s Blue and gold macaw, Charlie is enjoying the warmer weather by carrying out castle checks with Presentation Assistant, Amy Hickman.

Amy said: “Charlie loves to see what’s going on as she’s quite a nosey bird, so when the weather’s sunny she comes out with me on my daily check around the castle keep.

“We keep her out for around 20 – 30 minutes, but it’s great enrichment for her as she gets to see some of the other animals and meet visitors, who always love spotting her when she’s out and about.”

When not wandering around the grounds, 26 year-old Charlie can be found in the Savannah Room in the Discovery Centre, bopping along to her favourite tunes on the radio!
