Flamingoes line the shores of Lake Nakuru in Kenya like a pink ribbon. It is an amazing sight…literally millions of flamingoes as far as the eye can see.

    Lovely shot of a beautiful bird. I watched a program recently that explained why Flamingo’s allbeit plentiful are regarded as potentially endangered due to only laying one egg a year, and of those eggs its estimated only about 30% laid will reach adulthood. So a disaster in a given year could spell real danger for them

  • I didn’t know that but when in Kenya last year, a game ranger explained to me that they had lost thousands and thousands of flamingoes in Lake Nakuru as a result of the sewage system in the nearby town collapsing and seeping into the lake.
