Lovely sequence Leeukos. :thumbs_up:

I have seen Secretary birds, martial eagles, a tawny and a bateleur 'paddling' in waterholes in Kgalagadi when it was too hot to fly, but not having a bath.

Leeukos, great set of photos :cam:

Is it just me, or are Fish Eagles becoming a lot rarer.
Hardly seen any on my last 2 trips to Kruger.

Great sequence, Leeukos :clap: :clap: :clap:

We also had the honour in watching a fish eagle taking a bath and it was a pure bliss to see how mad this raptor got when taking its bath :thumbs_up:
