Flamingos in Dubai

Migrating Flamingos fly past taller and taller  buildings relentlessly under construction in Dubai, one of the United Arab Emirates.   Development is encroaching ever closer to the Ras Al Khor Wildlife Sanctuary where many Flamingos reside.   There is doubt in some quarters that this sanctuary can survive under the crush of surrounding urban development at the bottom of the Persian Gulf.   Only about 500 Flamingos are to be found at Ras Al Khor and although Flamingos can soar to great heights, notably to avoid eagle attacks, first they have to be able to take take off between Dubai's sky-scraping towers.
