My wife's favourite raptor.

You will have to visit Kgalagadi, and drive slowly from 2R to MM. That is where we see them.



Thank Bush Baptist will follow your advice :thumbs_up: in April :lol:

I am following my own advice in 11 days time :dance:

Hope to add to my list then. We bought a 'tablet' yesterday and if anyone hears bird calls in the park, it could be me. :shock:
