This weeks bird weekly photo challenge is photographs of rare birds for your area, here is my attempt at photographs for this week.
We are quite local to a wetlands trust which has lots of birds that are actually not local to the area. Below are some photographs taken on mine and Mr Hs last visit.
We definitely never see a flamingo in the wild where we are but do love seeing them when we go to Martin Mere or even Chester zoo (which would be our nearest zoo).
They fascinate me standing so confidently on one leg in the water. Until visiting Martin Mere I had very realised the way in which they bend their legs. It really does not look very natural.
