A Striped Crake would have had a lot of people very excited but even so an African crake is not common or rather is common but near impossible to find.
Those are great photies W@H, nothing like playing with a new toy, kind of brings the kid in you out.

I could not take many pics even if I had tried, cause I was constantly sitting with 2 castles(mine and W@H's) in my hands and binocs held between my feet. :lol:

Eisshhh!!!! Eventually got through 12 pages of I don’t know what but did managed to find a shorthand trip report in there somewhere.

It seems from the amount of Castles you consumed that you saw plenty of pink elephants, toilets and even polar bears. WTM got involved in a new hobby called CRAFT and I dare not ask what that is. Among a ton of empty beer cans they did see some birds and animals.

I’ll not mention certain dogs spotted by them as I still don’t believe they exist in the Park anymore.

All-in-all it seemed you guys enjoyed yourself and it seems that 4 Castles take the shake right out of W@H’s hands that enables him to take decent photos

This 'trip report' thread is a forum classic and I feel should not be swept :D
