Specifically, Baringo County in Kenya has welcomed the return of more than two million flamingos to Lake Bogoria. The birds have migrated after the breeding season in February and March at Lake Natron in Tanzania.
“We have not received such a high number of flamingos for the past two decades. We are doing an annual census of the birds in collaboration with Nature Kenya, Kenya Wildlife Service (KWS), Birdlife International, tour companies and hoteliers in July to ascertain the exact number,” expanded James Kimaru, game warden, Lake Bogoria National Reserve.
Kimaru said the birds’ annual move into the area occurred in time for the tourist high season between mid-June and early July.
