A flamingo has baffled experts after it started acting like a swan to keep cool in the hot weather.

The birds normally keep cool by standing on one leg or briefly dousing themselves in water.

But this 52-year-old flamingo has taken to swimming on the lakes at Slimbridge Wetland Centre in Gloucestershire, and looks like a floating pink swan.

Keepers at the centre say they have never witnessed the "unusual" behaviour before.
