Encounter Flamingos, Red Squirrels, and cute ducks that will feed out of the palm of your hand; larger than life bugs on the Bug Trail; and learn more about Pensthorpe Conservation Trust’s 'Actively Saving Species' projects including Operation Turtle Dove, the Great Crane Project and their Corncrake re-introduction programme.

  • Conservationists hopeful for breeding flamingos in Norfolk as flock expands beyond ‘magic 40’

    It is hoped that the breeding fortunes are on the up for a group of Greater Flamingos at Pensthorpe Natural Park, near Fakenham in Norfolk, which has welcomed 20 new birds to join its resident flock of 29.

    The new birds, which have come from Slimbridge Wetland Centre, near Gloucester, take the Pensthorpe flock beyond the ‘magic number 40’ which, according to experts, can help to boost breeding rates amongst the birds.

    Flamingos are notoriously social birds that enjoy living in colonies of sometimes over 100. The larger the flock, the more likely the birds are to mate.

    The new birds, which are in excellent condition, range from two to 30 years old, and have settled well into their new surroundings at the Norfolk nature reserve. 

    12 of the new birds are female whilst eight are male, taking the gender split of the entire flock to 24 males and 25 females.
