Spoon amongst the flamingos


It was a trip to Blacklake – the flamingo are always wandering and as I watched from amongst them came a strange flamingo. Right colouring but wrong beak.
Strangely there was only one of them

OMGoodness! A "Crossbill". Has there been some goings-on between a Spoonbill and a Flamingo, I wonder? Hope they are not going down the same road as those malarking mallards. Brilliant pics of it!
