There are some large crocs at the 'Lake', but this grey heron decided to rather walk the other way...

Agree, hilda. Thank you for your comment. :thumbs_up:

We saw these 2 African pied wagtails to the tree and it seemed there is a nest there, perhaps on the other side.
It adds to the diversity one can expect only at the "Lake"

Love the :cam:

I am always amazed at how brazen the birds are around crocs. They seem to be able to read when there is danger. Mind you, I did once see a egret kill by a croc. I felt very sorry for the egret.
