Editorial comment: These numbers of sightings and past records involving at least one of an adult and a 1w together are clearly speaking of an, at least in most of the cases, wild origin, thus 'A' category, for these birds and the species getting into the Spanish (and European) lists. It seems that the only minor ringed in Spain some years ago at Fuentedepiedra was indeed an escape already ringed in Germany and it was double ringed (thus carrying two metal rings, Jordi Clavell/GAE-BirdLife; J.C.Fernández Ordoñez in litt). But there has not been any other ringing since then. Neither that bird showed again. Pattern of occurrences match natural vagrancy.No Lesser Flamingos were noted during a visit to the colony of P.roseus at Delta de l'Ebre, Tarragona on 20.3 (R.Gutiérrez) neither there had been recent reports (Carles Domingo
