Birding: Mopaniveld.

Unread postby Scipio » Sun Dec 27, 2009 3:36 pm

For all those that love to see Raptors, Today, in a 18 km stretch we saw more than 300 raptors, 14 specie, close on the ground and low level just north of Phalaborwa gate. :thumbs_up:

Oh, & for all the tickers, twitchers, stiffnecks that does not believe, :tongue: At least I got the pics. :twisted:
