In the viewfinder of an amateur photographer, pink flamingos. Sunday February 28, it is just 2 ° C on the shores of a Cantal lake, and the birds are easily confused in the mist for the amateurs. “I saw them whiter than pink from afar, I came to see more closely, and that was it“, astonished an observer. In the town of Talizat, nobody can explain the presence of these two pink flamingos, a ringed adult male and a young female from Camargue, who would have found food in the lake.
“The life of Cantal can correspond to the life of flamingos, even if it is surprising in February, with 2 ° C“Says Jean-Charles Fayon, mayor of the town. The curious are multiplying around the trap, sometimes disturbing these fierce birds. The passage of these flamingos in the Cantal would be as unusual as it is temporary: the two birds could soon resume their way south.
