Kimberley’s famous lesser Flamingos, a popular tourist attraction, seems to have returned to Kamfersdam after some good rain at the beginning of January this year. Late last year it was reported that most of the flamingos had left the dried up dam completely. Sello Matsie, a spokesperson for Sol Plaatje Municipality then attributed the disappearance of the lesser flamingos to broken water pumps and a lack of rainfall. As far as rainfall is concerned, the situation has since improved. According to BirdLife South Africa this wetland is one of the world’s most important bird conservation sites, as it is only one of six places globally where lesser flamingos breed.
