Default A Flamboyance of Flamingos!

Well I never knew there were flamingos in Mallorca!
Amazing photos on Facebook of them flying over the bay

Many thanks to Robert Maynard (the photographer) who has kindly given permission for me to post some of the photos here.

I was only telling my husband on Sunday (watching the Painting/Art programme on BBC1, painting Flamingos), my first trip with my parents to Majorca was in 1970. I remember going on an organised coach Safari trip and seeing Pink Flamingos. I do have a photograph some where! Other half was doubting me but I know better! LOL

They have been in l'Albufereta for as long as we remember, great pictures never seen them flying over the bay.
