Pumbaa, I am so glad to hear that the repairs are done
. They were working on it the first few days I was there, but did not continue when it started to rain, and the of course the floods. Thanks for your kind comments

Wonderful raptor pictures, Noel
I often find them very frustrating to
. They will be clearly visable... in front of a branch
... or just out of reach
.. or directly in the sun
the minute you focus the
they are inspired... to fly away
So very right MM, which is of course why I appreciated that there were so many of them, and most of them close to the road, and in no mood to fly off anywhere. Not that I appreciated the rain, but still, I got to see so many raptors, and I LUUUUVVVV raptors. Thanks for commenting MM
Lovely Wild Dog sighting Noel! And a Hippo in the road .... I thought it was normal? Maybe we were just lucky to have found them in the road or under a tree in the middle of the day.
Great shot of the "headless" Fish Eagle, although I prefer them with a head!
Handsome Kudu, and huge Shongololo!
Beautiful bird and raptors pictures!
Hilda, you were lucky to see Hippos on the road. First time in 30 years, and that included many many times of being out as soon as the gates open.

Love all the birdie-pics!
's interesting - the more I go to the bush, the more I enjoy the birds! I'm scared I might turn into a "twitcher" soon...
I thought all Krugerians (that's us) were twitchers. Too late I'm afraid. Welcome to the world of twitchers. Its fun, its crazy, its expensive, and its wonderful. I came to that conclusion after visiting Walter Sisulu Botanical Gardens last year and there was a huge hype about the Grey Wagtail. Some bird club had come all the way from Pretoria, a bunch of them scouring, sometimes running (at the hint of a sighting) loaded with Binocs, Digiscopes and Cameras. BTW I'm not, repeat not, a Twitcher
All photos of birds in this TR are my Camera's own doing!
