Birthday birdsong at Harewood House

Have your say

Staff at Harewood House, near Leeds, are celebrating after five of their 13 Chilean flamingos have reached the landmark age of 50.

The flamingos were hatched in 1967 in Chile, and arrived at the estate as one of the first residents when its bird garden opened in 1970.
