Thanks
It must be looking good now. It must have all fallen after the 18th December. To Naomi c the birds you listed this morning were all absent in December. Hardly any bee eaters, no quelea at all and no starlings either.
The nesting site was deserted. And not one stork except a saddlebilled in the Limpopo which was a new one for me which was great.

I assume that the rain there coincided with the general good falls that there were at Punda Maria and major parts of northern KNP from the evening of 24 Dec .

Hi Guys

Mapungubwe was totally dry from July to November 2008. We receive our first little rain from the 15th December onwards. Up to now it is still raining here and there. :dance:

Hey Casius, it was great seeing you in Maps a month ago! However, I don't agree that is was green... Yes, the mopane trees all had new, bright green leaves but the grass was still yellow and the game was still dutifully visiting the scarce water points like the Maloutswa pan, which is pumped in the dry season. It's great to hear it has been raining substantially over the last few weeks though! Will check up in Feb. :wink:
