A family has rescued a flamingo while at sea.

The father uploaded a photo of the flamingo both at sea and on land on Facebook, once the flamingo was picked up by BirdLife Malta officials. A BirdLife spokesperson told that the flamingo was injured.

Best way to start the weekend 😊. An early fishing trip with my son ended saving this lovely Flamingo. Thanks also to…

The spokesperson appealed the public to phone BirdLife Malta should they come across a flamingo on land or at sea.

In another non-related incident, the flamingo saved by Civil Protection officials last night has died.
