I counted 395 chicks on the island at 16h15, but I reckon that there are at least 1000 chicks on the island (many are hidden by the masses of adults). Many, many eggs can still be seen and there are a large number of adults still incubating eggs. I noticed that small groups of Greater Flamingos repeatedly flew over the island and looked down onto the breeding activities. Will they start breeding too?
The flamingo island covered in Lesser Flamingos, with Kimberley in the background and storm clouds brewing in the distance.
Only chicks on the front of the island and the back left and right of the island are visible, with 395 being counted. There are probably many chicks amongst the mass of adults spread across the large island.
