Since staff here and guests combined got our large feathered friend airborne last season, our main focus here for the new season when we aren't ensuring guests are happy is to get BigBird catching his own fish.
We are trying various methods to awaken his natural instincts once more, such as...
Posing as a fish in the water, throwing semi alive fish in his direction, taking him on the kayak to the best fishing grounds and talking him through watching bird activity on the water as a sign of a shoal.
He seems a bit too bouyant to dive effectively so I am considering a weight belt? Here are a few pics of progress so far.
