Can you identify this breed of bird and guinea pig?

Can anyone identify this bird with its chick and does anyone know the breed of this guinea pig? Both were photographed in the UK, but the bird was at a reserve that has birds from all over the world. I believe the guinea pig is a recognised UK breed.

Identify this strange clamp thing.

Identify this strange clamp thing. Here. It's black aluminum. It's pretty small. Just fits over my pinky finger. The upper left part there is held on with a screw. You can make out the rounded head of the screw. So by loosening and tightening the screw, the 'jaws' could grab something.
