Ernie the Bird


Ernie was born at the sanctuary after his mother sneakily laid her eggs in a nest under the chicken coop, out of sight from staff and volunteers. By the time the nest was found Mrs Swan had already brought her broad to hatching.

Ernie lots of siblings, and shares his nest with one of his brothers.

Ernie made his TV debut in 2018 when he filmed a feature for the BBC advertising the benefits of animal assisted therapy.
