Lovely pictures Jan!

The color red of the shrike always amazes me. The wet secretary bird is funny to see, thanks for sharing!
During our last visit to Nossob there were lots of Yellow-billed Kites sitting in trees around the camp, circling in the air. They were gathering for the migration I think.
This is a short video of the kites circling in the air.



Enjoy!

Best regards,

Rob

Great Korhaan shot Jan. Seems to be calling?? I don't recall ever sighting one of these other than on the dune road drives. Love their colours and you did this one justice with your shot. :clap: :clap:

Goronta, thanks for sharing your lovely shots. Your red head finches are beautiful. There seems to be an abundace of this species in KTP. I have witnessed hundreds especially around the 13th and 14th boreholes. :clap: :clap:
