Julie Millar, the education officer at Blair Drummond safari park shows us the latest arrivals at the safari park summer baby boom.
First up is European eagle owl Gloria. Gloria is only a few weeks old but already is looking like a big healthy animal. She is called Gloria for the time being because at this stage it can be quite difficult to determine the sex of the owl.
In the pens the baby Fallow dear continue to appear. Julie explains,
"When the mum gives birth she tries to hide them so we need to keep an eye out for them. The newest fawn is still a wee bit wobbly on it's feet but was welcomed by the rest of the herd."
The latest baby bison are about one month old.
"When she was born she was a nice light colour but as she gets older her fur will get darker. She tends to spend time playing with the Fallow dear, getting into trouble and sometimes getting scared of them and running back to mother.
All these new arrivals will be keeping Julie and the rest of the staff busy for the weeks to come.
As Julie admits, "It's going to be hectic."
