Making our way home from Scillies last month we called in to see a flying boat! This Dalmatian Pelican has been touring the south West Counties since it’s arrival in Cornwall on 7th May. Studying the birds moult it has been possible to identify the bird has been in Germany as well as Eastern France but was first seen in Poland. So is it a wild bird from the north east Mediterranean or did it escape from a collection somewhere on the continent? Either way it was an awe inspiring creature.
