A Touch of Pink!

This morning I was asked to help our aviculture team at WWT Martin Mere to round up the Chilean Flamingos, for their annual health check. The avics wanted me to take the biometric measurements of the birds, which consists of measuring both the skull & tarsus of each bird. So not technically wild bird ringing, I thought a bit of flamingo handling was too much of a good opportunity to miss out on & generally that Flamingo round ups are always good fun!
