Recent heavy rains had watered down the salinity of Lake Nakuru so there weren't as many flamingos as usual when we visited. But there was still plenty to see - including 19 white rhinos!!!
This salt-water lake in the heart of the great rift valley is usually pink with flamingos which feed on the algae in the salt water. Last time I visited some two and a half million formed a thick pink rim round the lake's edge.
But there were still a few thousand to see and the flamingos that were there brightened up our view.
And these pelicans were great to watch.
