THE CRIMSON WING
Mystery of the Flamingos
"In a remote and forgotten wilderness, one of nature's last great mysteries unfolds: the birth, life and survival of a million crimson-winged flamingos.
Against the dramatic backdrop of unforgiving, never-before filmed landscapes, we follow the birth of a tiny flamingo hatchling, and the perils and fortunes of her life in the extraordinary "other world" of Lake Natron in northern Tanzania."
Watch out for this film from Disney Nature - released in cinemas in 2009.
In the UK, it's released in Sep 25 2009, in Cineworld cinemas - my local has only 4 viewing next Tuesday.
It's a fabulous film about the flamingos on Lake Natron - do see it if you can.
