Tomorrow I am off to birder’s paradise aka Kruger National Park….I have packed my new Robert’s ( a pressie from Gwen ) and all the photography toys…and checked the weather report….some rain by Tuesday, which is cool (literally too) and which always brings the birds out; cooler weather than usual for about a week. So here’s hoping this treasure hunt will be a great one. Which brings me to a little thought that has been niggling since yesterday after receiving a certain sms from a certain someone concerning my seeming blaseness about keeping a bird count; true, I am guilty of this, the birds are ticked off for each trip in a separate tick list. It needs reconciling. An idiosyncracy most probabaly yes, but also a great and easy way to keep tabs on what birds were seen each trip if one is somewhat challenged in the file keeping department.
But all I really care about RIGHT now is climbing on a plane and heading for the birder’s paradise….. ( I have left a meticulously written list of instructions for my house sitter concerning keeping the bird baths filled.)
Merry Christmas everyone!!!!!!
