Digital Calendar photo description 

"Flamingo Take-off"

 

Early morning on the edge of Lake Nakuru in the mighty Kenyan rift valley, a line of Lesser Flamingos starts running and flapping in order to get airborne. They were wading in the mists rising off the warm water in the cool morning air. Each bird, starting from left to right, seemed to be at a different stage of take-off culminating in the final bird on the right just having achieved lift-off.

 

 

Lesser Flamingo  -  Pheonicopterus minor

The Lesser Flamingo has a white and crimson plumage with a dark red bill and long stilt like legs. These beautiful birds are common but nomadic in shallow freshwater lakes, salt pans and estuaries making a distinctive “honk-honk” sound.
