Hi Every body

It certainly was a stormy morning nothing like a drive to work in a storm to wake you up.

It is real quiet with people away, I guess its going to be quieter in deecember, I wonder if Cheets and Heksie managed to find the maroela HB for my challenge :hmz:

Hope every one had an awesome weekend.

The cricket is really awesome at the moment, really hope we can finish the aussies off today.

Good Evening V's :yaya:

WOW, the weekend is over and back to normal life.

The Proteas showed the WORLD why we are NUMBER 1. Dale Steyn is Amazing, He was surely pumped up. How I hated Ponting all his career but today I had to Salute him because he WAS a great batsmen, but I still hate him.

Hope all the V's had a great weekend. I will be uploading my TR today

Hey everyone Happy hump day (Only 3 more humps left in 2012)

I am not on holiday yet stuck at work lol and I am going to have a rather busy last week :wall: but atleast there is the reward of kruger after that week.
Speaking of the trip there has been a slight change of plan, My dad has to go to Germany on business that weekend so my mom will be joining my sister and I. We will now be Spending 2 nights at lower sabie in a 3 person hut and 2 nights at Skukuza in a bungalow.

Also the red chested cuckoo I have been hearing around work finally showed itself to me this morning it landed in the tree right in front of where I parked, great way to start the day :thumbs_up:

Sorry I've been so quite everyone, been birding non-stop the past few days. It's been good though, found Eastern Gautengs 1st ever White-backed Night-Heron yesterday at Mabusa, and twitched South Africa's 5th ever Collared Flycatcher this morning.

Welcome, welcome, welcome :clap: :clap: :clap:
This is exactly why I started this topic ... as young peeps you feel like an alien being a nature lover (especially here in Joburg) and it is awesome to meet and chat with other people that are our age and have the same passion :dance: Please do come here and chat with us as often as you like :D And it would be a blessing if you could share your knowledge elsewhere on the forum as well :D
