Flamingo migration to Turkish resort Bodrum captivates photographers
Photographers have flocked to the Turkish resort of Bodrum to photograph recently migrated flamingos.
This year nearly 2,000 flamingos arrived in the wetland areas of Tuzla, which are 18 kilometers from the Aegean province of Muğla’s Bodrum district.
Birdwatchers also came in their droves to soak in the peculiar beauty of the flamingo migration landscape.
A 39-year-old birdwatcher, Karya Akgün, said flamingos migrated every year from the Gediz Delta to the north to Bodrum in the middle of April.
“After Bafa Lake, Bodrum is the second natural habitat for flamingos and their chicks in terms of food and shelter. People fascinated by the flamingos’ beauty make weekend trips to Bodrum from November onwards,” Akgün said.
