The male owl, aged four, travelled from the New Forest Wildlife Park to join female Bonnie, aged eleven, who already resides at the Zoo in Alfriston.

Zoo Keepers are keen to give the newbie a name and are looking to the public for inspiration.

Section Leader Gemma Romanis said: “The new male is settling in well to his new surroundings and loving the female attention from Bonnie.

“He has been brought to the zoo with a view to breeding, so we would love a name which is suitable for a father-to-be, but any other suggestions are welcome.”
