We’re ecstatic to welcome to our team a five month old Bald Eagle who we have named Wallace. Our naming theme for this year is naturalists so he’s been named after Alfred Russell Wallace, the British naturalist, explorer, geographer, anthropologist, biologist and illustrator. We’ve teamed him up for training with Simon Christer from our Bird Team and we’ll keep you up to date with his progress over the next few months. In time, we hope that he’ll be a star of our displays alongside veteran superstar, Danebury. Wallace hatched at Cotswold Falconry Centre in March and they have kindly shared with us some amazing photos of him as a youngster.
Wallace has been given to the Trust by our close friends at Gauntlet Birds of Prey, Eagle and Vulture Park.
