just come back from the meet (literelly) :lol:

had a lot of fun!!!!!!!

No pics from me but maybe someone else took who came on the meet?

We saw the eagles just before we all left :dance: :dance:

Also with the help of oom,laine,Imax and Game@spotter i now have
3 new ticks :dance: :dance:

We shared birding tales, and talked about kruger and its birdlife.

If i did not look at the members mugshots last night i would never have found oom, laine, imax etc. :shock:

we were waiting at the entrance and then i saw Game@spotter with his BRIGHT yellow shirt and folowed him which led us to oom and laine.

we sat talking at the restuarant and then Imax came :dance: With his daughter :D

anyway we had alot of fun :D

Hi all :D

Was nice meeting the few that actually pitched up :whistle: Nice to connect a face and personality to a forum name. As for the bright shirt, HEY I tried to promote things here :lol:

I'm just glad there are still many wildlife maniacs like myself around here :dance: Thnaks for the effort, and WTM...I forgive you, enjoy your Kruger trip :thumbs_up:

I wonder if I did take pics of the few of us ..... :doh: Will see later :)

BM,

I had a long thought and have put in a quite a bit of research in about the Woodpecker we've seen. It was a Cardinal Woodpecker and not Golden-Tailed. :wink: Hope it is still a new tick for you?

It was really awesome to have been able to meet up with so many new faces! :dance: It was really a lovely little outing. Thanks guys.

ps: Imax, if you don't tell, then I won't. :twisted: :twisted:
