Quite a lot of excitement this morning . First , a black sparrowhawk swooped past after a laughing dove - no luck this time - and too quick to take a picture .
Then next a steppe buzzard visiting , sitting on an electric powerline pole , hoping to catch something . Too far-off ( about 250 meters ) for clear pics .
Then suddenly a confrontation between a white-tailed mongoose , and a water mongoose .

Whilst sitting on the stoep a few days ago , watched a couple of Hadeda Ibis foraging on the lawn , poking in the grass , probing for insects , earthworms .

Image

Enjoying each others company , having their evening meal in companyable silence - as couples do :whistle:

Image

When along came Joe 8) That's the local little bully-boy white tailed mongoose who had a fall-out last week with a water-mongoose .

Image

approached Mrs Hadeda

Image

Look around - check out the scene

Image

Hey , I'm as tall as you are

Image

Here's my wife Jenny too wanting to say hello .

Image

Image

Oh well she's left , but you and I can still be friends , or what :lol: No , stay away from me :x

Image

And just leave us - we wanna be alone now :roll:

Image

Right , see you around :wink:

Wow, alot of wildlife in ya'll gardens!
:redface: To share this story but I hope it will educate those again not knowing to not keep any wildlife in a cage from your garden. Not that there are any on this forum( I hope not)
Relatives of mine living on a farm excitedly last week showed me their new pet. I dreaded at the sight, a very depressed chameleon! It took some convincing to their 5 year old to let "Smartie" go, but at the end he agreed that his family is missing him terribly!

One of my old friends also bought a chameleon a while ago. She demands keeping it in the small cage, even though they have a big, beautiful garden. :x They named him 'Elvis'.

Yes, it's a shame :( Sometimes people think they're rescuing the poor creature, but that's just the opposite!

I always thought our British birds were all black or brown, but this colourful finch was feeding in my friend's garden!!
