Following a successful career in copywriting in London, Mike Reynolds and his wife Audrey had a dream of opening a bird garden in which to house their growing collection of tropical birds. They found Glanmor House in Hayle to be an ideal location, and after much work, they opened "Bird Paradise" (as it was then known) in 1973. The park continued to expand - and today the park houses over 1,000 birds (130 species) - with the addition of red pandas, otters, donkeys, sheep and pygmy goats (which children can feed by hand). Located in Hayle near St. Ives in Cornwall, this zoo-style park is laid out among trees on the hillside - with the majority of the animals located in the outside. There's a pool for the penguins, and feeding demonstrations scheduled for throughout the day. One of the highlights is the flight demonstrations by the birds of prey - 3 eagles and a vulture. The Scarlet Macaws also fly free. For energetic kids, there's also the JungleBarn - an indoor play area with drop-slides for the older kids and ball pools and soft play for the younger ones. There is also a cafe serving coffees and teas and child-friendly food. The park also highlights its work with conservation groups to protect endangered species, and its various breeding programmes - including Operation Chough - to introduce the Chough back to its Cornish habitat.
