Your 2nd Eurasian Hobby! That's great Johan! The African Black duck also displays beautiful colours when in flight. Of course not to be compared to the Turaco's colours, but still unexpectedly beautiful! Your list is growing fast and furious! :clap: :clap:

Are you moving to Satara today? Enjoy! :dance: :dance:

Hi Johan,

Also on board for this trippie :thumbs_up: . Awesome bird sightings thus far. When I read through the report I come to only one conclusion :hmz: . You don't become a stiffneck in three years :whistle: , maybe a third rated amateur :roll: . Enjoy today :thumbs_up: .

MM is back in harness again and increasing the audience. :wink:

Johan, that is a very impressive list 8) I am in sync with Tilandi in saying that I wish I could have filled a space/place.

Eish! Nofing is worf yo' front teef... :lol:

I must quickly post a few lines. I'm sitting on the 'balcony' of my safari tent with light fading fast, the sounds of the bush are taking over where sight is left in the darkness.

The night sounds will soon join in the flip-over from day to night.

If I still have oomf left after the night drive, I will post a recount of the drive to LS... I did manage in excess of 100 ticks for the day! :dance:

The Hobby may be the same bird because I saw it in the same area, hilda.

It is Lower Sabie for today. I am in a safari tent with the most exquisite vista!

I am happy for every 'mite on board... the more the merrier I say.

We have to make a plan to go birding together so that you can see there is nothing special going on... just nonstop binos in front of eyes...
:lol:

Hi, MM.

Good to have along as well. Soon we'll exceed the Jacaranda Breakfast Show ratings :lol: they have an audience of 19!
