Award: Sighting of the Year - Birds (2014)
Hi Jan, Goronta and Sky,

Thanks for sharing all your beautiful pictures!!!
Jan, great shots of the sandgrouses and bee-eaters, wow!!
Sky, your "freezing" picture of the 4 birds in a row is sooo cute!
Goronta, thanks a lot for the lovely pictures of the small raptors!

On our first day in TR we saw a group of White-backed Mouse birds, according to Newman's Birds of Southern Africa this is about the most northern spot you can find them. I am not sure if this correct because if I am right we also saw them in Nossob once.

(We have a nice day overhere with hardly any wind, so I will grab my camera for a visit to the botanical garden in Utrecht (Holland) "hunting" for some nice flower close-ups 8) )

Best regards,


Rob
