Would appreciate any recent comments on Lake Panic sightings as I will be visiting next week . At my last visit , a pair of Goliath Herons , Giant , Pied & Malachite Kingfishers were guaranteed , and I saw many interesting species in the walkway - Bearded Robin , Terrestrial Bulbul GT Woodpecker , Natal Robin and many others .
