As previously reported, Dalai finally left the confines of his cage on the 11th May, after several weeks of quarantine & sitting tight. The deciding factor to getting him out was wild, seeded grass. In other words, an irresistible foodie treat!
His moment of freedom was captured on film:
After a bit of goading from Phineas, & then Bezukhov coming to investigate, Dalai found his wings & was off!
He flew several high laps of the room & did not appear to know how to fly lower but gradually his circles got lower until he executed a perfect landing on the Silver Villa! He then flew off again & found the Manor. He also, very cleverly, found his own cage & the doorway & popped back home!
