Migration is at its peak at the Sani Wetlands!

If anyone goes to the Sani Wetlands, he will have the chance to see Flamingos (Phoenicopterus ruber), Little Egrets (Egretta garzetta), more than 200 Black-winged Stilts (Himantopus himantopus), Night Herons (Nycticorax nycticorax), Spoonbills (Platalea leucorodia), and Spotted Redshanks (Tringa erythropus) among other waders that are gathering together, getting ready for their long migration journey back to Africa.

Also, the Honey Buzzards (Pernis apivorus) have started their journey and you might see them around the bushes picking up insects such as bees.
