The million+ lesser flamingos at Lake Natron in Tanzania are the subject of a visually stunning new documentary film from Disneynature.
The Crimson Wing charts the life of a lesser flamingo from birth and follows its battle to thrive in the unforgiving environment of Lake Natron.
This exciting and thought-provoking film features amazing footage of a flamingo hatching – filmed at WWT Slimbridge back in spring 2007.
See The Crimson Wing exclusively at Cineworld cinemas across the country on Tuesday 29 September (Friday 25 September in London) Check www.cineworld.co.uk for details.
