Infertile flamingos foster chicks

Flamingo chicks have been fostered by another species of the bird at Slimbridge Wetland Centre.

Three pairs of Andean flamingos at the Gloucestershire reserve were given eggs of their Chilean counterparts to nest.

The Andean flamingos had been prompted to lay eggs by the hot weather but the flock has been infertile for 19 years so were left chick-less once again.

All three chicks have hatched and staff say they are confident they will survive.

Slimbridge is the only place in the world where all six species of flamingo can be seen.
