Sifting through my photos, I found one of a "Rooivlerk Springkaanvoel" nesting site and Western Marsh Harrier. So it is 3 for me. Oh, and Ostrich. :thumbs_up:

I've spent the last couple of days of foul weather putting my bird pics in one folder and have found 207 plus a few so far unidentified.
I'm going to Kruger next month :dance: :dance: and then Cape Town, WCNP, Golden Gate , Sani Pass and KTP between January - March :dance: :dance: :dance: :dance: :dance: :dance: :dance:
so hopefully there will be some more to add!
