The bird, known as Cherry, has been spotted by dozens of bemused people since its escape on Tuesday.

Its keepers are growing increasingly worried for her welfare as she faces attacks from seagulls and other wild birds due to its bright red plumage.

Zoo workers and staff from the Scottish SPCA have tried to temp it using pots of mussels and prawns but so far their attempts to recapture it has failed.

Although you may not spot a scarlet ibis on your Canal Boat Holiday there are a host of species you will be able to observe.

As you gentle cruise along the canals on your Canal Boat Holiday you will get back to nature and have a chance to see and hear it close up.

Nature comes to you on a Canal Boat Holiday look out for the bird life that make the canal banks their home.

Take time on your Canal Boat Holiday and just stop and listen to the wonderful birdsong along the canal banks.

Listen for an owl hooting or for a nightingale singing at dusk or at first light listen for blackbirds, robins and wrens as the dawn chorus sounds the start of morning.

If you are really lucky you may spot a flash of blue as a kingfisher darts into the reeds or you may see a kestrel hovering overhead.
