Caravan park intruder causes a flap
The unexpected guest was a rhea named Ronald, which had escaped with it female partner, Rita. Rheas are flightless birds native to South America which can reach a top running speed of 37mph. This fact was not lost on park owner Edward Goddard and manager Dave Price after several unsuccessful attempts to capture Ronald.
'Ronald certainly was an unexpected visitor,' said Dave's wife, Karen. 'He stayed on the field overnight before his owner Tom Evans came to collect it in a trailer. We were sad to see it go because it was a real talking point. Caravanners staying with us got up early to see him parading around the field.'
