World’s rarest bird gets new home in Madagascar


The rarest bird in the world – a species of duck called the Madagascar pochard – has been given a new home in time for Christmas.

A team from the Wildfowl and Wetlands Trust and Durrell Wildlife have released a small group of the birds at a lake in the north of Madagascar.

This, the team says, is a first step in the recovery of a species that it was thought had been driven to extinction.
