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.
