Charlie’s new toys

Presenter Heather John got crafty to make the Discovery Centre’s macaw Charlie, a new toy.

Following a donation from Charlie’s long-term adopter, Christine Clive, Heather purchased metal bells, measuring spoons and plastic beads and chains, which she threaded together through plastic piping to make the jangly bird toy.

Heather said: “Charlie loves noise so this toy was an immediate hit and she’s spent ages bashing it with her beak.

“As well as all the items to make the toy, I was also able to buy four foraging toys and a mini snowman bird piñata, which we put her favourite treats inside for her to find.

“Along with bags of nuts which Christine also sent, Charlie’s been well and truly spoilt!”

Thank you Christine once again for your generous donation!
