Lake Nakuru (Kenya), a small shallow alkaline lake on the southern edge of the town of Nakuru, is world famous as the location of the greatest bird spectacle on earth - myriads of fuchsia pink lesser Lesser Flamingos (Phoenicopterus minor) whose numbers are legion, often more than a million - or even two million.
