|Morecambe Bay 2020|
How will they get here? Well in much the same way that escaped parakeets formed the basis of the now famous flocks Kingston Parakeets in the South East, experts have suggested that it is only a matter of time before a breeding pair of Flamingos escape captivity from a local reserve, such as Martin Mere, and take up residence in the bay.
The issue of new and exotic species colonising our shores has caused such concern that DEFRA has set up a special sub-committee to monitor developments. Any sightings of Flamingos in the bay should therefore be reported immediately to the Association for the Protection, Rehabiliation and Integration of Life From Other Overseas Lands. Thank you.
