‘Skittles’ the Scarlet Macaw is found

Skittles is back home!

Skittles at Porthleven
Thank you so much for your amazing response to our appeal for sightings. This morning she was spotted in Porthleven and she quickly came down to the Keepers this morning hungry and tired but all okay. Here she is with Paul Wilson, ex Royal Navy bird control unit, and he had not heard about Skittles being missing, but as soon as he saw her he knew to call the Park. We also had lots of reports of sightings of her on social media, thank you to everyone that kept an eye out for her and informed us of any sightings and for sharing our post. ????????? Xx

Urgent Appeal – Have you seen ‘Skittles’ the Scarlet Macaw?

Staff at Paradise Park in Hayle have put out an urgent appeal for any sightings of ‘Skittles’ a Scarlet Macaw who has gone missing.

Curator David Woolcock explains “Our flock of Scarlet Macaws fly free around the Park for up to four hours a day. But on Wednesday there was a sudden sharp increase in wind which caused four of the birds to be blown off course. Three of the four were located and retrieved within two hours of them going missing thanks to the help of local people who called in and reported their whereabouts. But Skittles has not been seen and we are now asking the public for their help in reporting any sightings to us. People can either message us on social media or call 01736 753365.”
