Default The V formation explained.

I was fortunate to see a small flock of Bald Ibises in the Algarve several years ago, they were part of a Spanish reintroduction programme. They had been settled around a Gold Course for several weeks and were not fazed by the traffic of cars and people passing by them as they perched on the fences of the driving range and surrounding trees. Amazing looking birds if not slightly ugly!


A fascinating read:
