Lovely Jacana doing some stretching exercises, Jan. :dance:

Excellent action shot of the Weaver doing the neck-spin...you captured the moment brilliantly. Great one. :clap: :clap: :clap:

Just managed to do some photo cleanup of our trip, so hopefully will soon start contributing. :D

Lovely pics of the Prinia and then the Crake Twins, Jan. :clap:

I agree - that heron chick made a lot of noise, but always lovely to hear and see him attacking his mother for some food. Another excellent pic and moment captured. :dance:

I got some bad news :( :( :( -my hard drive giving problems and in for data recovery, so hope to get my pics recovered...so, not in a good space at the moment. :wall:

Thank you for sharing your brilliant pics, Jan. :thumbs_up:
