in Science & Nature Love It Bird of the Day – Royal Spoonbill at Weymouth by Pamela Moresby October 17, 2019, 9:37 am 167 Views 16 Votes 19 Comments Share Tweet Pin This beautiful Spoonbill lives at Weymouth, but they do fly away to other places and I am not sure why. It is called a “Spoonbill”, because it looks like it has a spoon at the end of its mouth.
