The last special sighting of the 3 rd day was the two Wahlberg’s Eagles. Unfortunately the sun was on the wrong side, but never the less a first for us.

Tawny Eagle 2013. Lack of feathers in front and under eye.

Wikipedia
Wahlberg’s Eagle
The large brown eagles are generally a tricky group to identify, but distinctive features of Wahlberg's Eagle include: round nostrils which separates it from Tawny and Steppe Eagles, although the two Spotted Eagles also have round nostrils; some form of a crest is usually visible; the gape only extends at maximum to the middle of the eye, whereas in Lesser Spotted Eagle, it extends to the back of the eye.
There are both light and dark phases of this species.

Day 4.
At 7 am we headed north to Kwang. At Cubitje Quab, as the rest of our stay, was nothing but doves and very few small birds.
Except for Lion spoor in the road at Kwang , only a Falcon on the ground drew our attention.

At 10h30 we left for Marie se draai.
We sat for a few minutes at the water hole watching the Gemsbok and Jackal when suddenly a Leopard crossed the road right in front of my vehicle.

She slowly walked down to the water. Back at the camp I had a look at the identification Guide and it was Balete, daughter of Tswana from Dikbaardskolk. She was recorded (sighted) on 24th April 2012.
