Description:

This is the first time I have seen Flamingos in the Liesbeek. They have been in the Black River for some time, and at the Observatory itself, but not in the Liesbeek. Nice.

P.S. Why don't you spell flamingos like Mangoes?

Description:

The conservation efforts at the penguin colony really is making a difference. I was at the same site about five or six years back and I must say there are many more penguins.

Too bad about development in the area. They are really building everywhere.
