Madagascar pochard: World's rarest bird gets new home

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

An international team of researchers released 21 of the birds at a lake in the north of Madagascar.

It is a step towards the recovery of a species that just over a decade ago was thought to be extinct.

Rescuing the species could also be a first step in protecting Madagascar's threatened wetlands.
