The greater flamingos consume food on the flooded and shallow coastal mudflats in Walvis Bay, Namibia. Walvis Bay Lagoon is a significant coastal barrier lake in southern Africa, situated on the vast coastline where the Namib desert meets the Atlantic Ocean. Each year, a large number of migratory birds, including over 150 species such as greater and lesser flamingos, spend the entire summer season in the lagoon and nearby salt flats.
