Filed under: Introduction — parto @ 4:22 am

Lake Nakuru’s pink lining is back in full after the number of flamingo’s doubled due to the current rains .The birds had increased from 3000,000 in march to about 7000,000 this month,said the Lake Nakuru National park .

The migration is attributed to rise in water levels in the Lake Natron and Bongoria ,adding that the park expected the number of birds to rise as more fresh water continues draining into the lake .leaders in flock of flamingo’s usually fly to different places to monitor availability of food,then report to the rest flock,which migrates to a new destination.

Resident flamingo’s were already constructing nests on the shores in readiness for the breeding seasons expected in 30 days.But the park is far from recovering from the recent dry spell.Rivers Makalia, Nderit and Njoro,which flow from the Mau forest to the lake ,and the animals ‘favorite source of drinking water ,are yet to revive only if we stop the encroachment of the land and destruction of the Mau forest where the supply of water from our rivers and lake originates.
