For more than a decade now Dr Johannes Fritz has been using his microlight aircraft to teach northern bald ibis the migratory routes between their summer and winter feeding grounds in Tuscany and the Austrian and German Alps.

Delightful, I wish that I could be like the birds and fly by myself without being encased inside a metal structure being able to fly over vast expanses and vistas. It must be a riot!

Thank You for sharing this Cher.
This is the first time I have seen a northern bald ibis, and to see them in a V formation isx someething else.
This reminds me of the young Canadian girl (with the help of her father in a different light weight craft), who taught a flock of geese the path of migration they should have been taking.
