WOW!!! What a busy and deurmekaar week it was!!!! I cannot believe tomorrow it is a week ago that we have the meet...
It was so nice to see old friends again and to make quite a few new friends... Every body was chatting and kuiering with every body! It was so enjoyable!! I hope to a few of you now also know Rietvlei a bit better.. It was a pity that Crested Val was not feeling well and I could not extend her birdlist, but at least Crested chick could join me on the drive..
The spirit on the drive was reaaly high and full of fun.. Sightings (I am not sure if any body posted it) includes Rhino, Buffalo, Red lipped Herald (snake), Rufous cheeked nightjar, Marsh Owl, THe big herd of Eland (including babies),lots of common reedbuck, but I think the highlight was the bushpig and springhare!I am sorry about the serval and aardwolf. It will have to wait until next time! Because the rian got us all soaking wet!!!
Thank you for all lthat attended!! .. and for those that could not make it.. maybe next time.. It will be great to meet you all in the "plastic bush"
I also have a favour to ask.. I know that some of you already did.. but I am desperate!! Please help if you can...
