Hi heritagearts, Queleas can be seen throughout the year, but what you would love to see is them breeding and Wahlberg's and Lesser Spotted Eagles sitting nearby to feed off them. The best time for that is during the summer months, especially from December through to February.

Most migrant birds can be seen during this period as well. :thumbs_up:
