Looking at the life cycle of the crimson-winged flamingoes that arrive in great numbers on Lake Natron in Tanzania every year. They come to seek the unique sulphurous algae which turn their feathers pink and aid them in finding a mate for breeding. In these seemingly idyllic surroundings, the beautiful birds are threatened by predators from the moment they hatch.
