Thanks for the invite to post Meerkitty. A more difficult one, but I will narrow it down.

During the breeding season this Raptor makes melodious whistle calls, some of which sounds jut like the Fish Eagle

Nope. The PCG's call sounds like melodious bagpipes.

KNP is sacred. I am opposed to the modernisation of Kruger and from the depths of my soul long for the Kruger of yesteryear! 1000+km on foot in KNP incl 56 wild trails.200+ nights in the wildernessndloti-indigenous name for serval.
