Greater & Lesser Flamingo (Phoenicopterus) P roseus & P.minor
We were driving along by the Vaal River near Kimberley, heading to Griquatown when we saw this ‘great splash’ of pink on the water. At first we thought it was water lilies we were looking at until they started to fly and we realised that it was flamingos by the thousands. What an incredibly unexpected sight.
