As regular CFZ-watchers will know, for some time Corinna has been doing a column for Animals & Men and a regular segment on On The Track... particularly about out-of-place birds and rare vagrants. There seem to be more and more bird stories from all over the world hitting the news these days so, to make room for them all - and to give them all equal and worthy coverage - she has set up this new blog to cover all things feathery and Fortean.

Pink flamingo lands at Salini reserve; bird under constant surveillance by BirdLife Malta


Thursday, 9 June 2016, 18:09Last update: about 8 days ago

A flamingo was today spotted at Salina where it is under constant observation by BirdLife Malta. This beautiful bird displays the unmistakable pink plumage and is also ringed, withBirdLife Malta currently tracing the bird's origin. Flamingos are scarce and irregular in Malta, so this is a particularly exciting sighting. Notwithstanding this, in previous occasions there were occasional sightings of flamingos in this same site, salt pans being their natural habitat.
