I'm including this about Mooiplaas here as it's adjacent to Tsendze.

We were about to leave when the very friendly caretaker of the picnic site stopped me because he saw the yellow and red ribbons on our vehicles. :thumbs_up:

Phiniuas took us to see the scops owl asleep in a tree.

Thank you Phiniuas. :thumbs_up: We would have missed it.......... :wall: :wall: and so would have many other visitors - all very excited :dance: :dance:

Beautiful pictures Rodgerh! I love those Eland! What a special sighting! :clap: :clap:

Of course I also love all the Owls and the Bateleurs! Absolutely stunning! :clap: :clap:

It was lovely to see you again, although you were very naughty to show barryels the Barred Owlet on a much lower branch in another tree than the one I was busy taking pictures of, VERY high up in another tree! :lol: :lol:

@ umtali1: Phinias showed us the little Scopsie at Mooiplaas too umtali1! Yellow and red ribbons certainly open doors! :dance: :dance:

What a super sighting, Umtali.

I hope there is a trip report on the way. :popcorn:

Stunning sightings Rodgerh :clap: :clap: .

Eland near Tsendze is still on my wish list :whistle: .

It was great to meet again and thank you for showing us the very special Tsendze African Barred Owlets African Scops-Owl :D .

Hilda took a perfect picture of one of the African Barred Owlets that was high up in a tree and whilst I just could not see it at all.

Rodgerh called me to the side and showed me the second one that was sitting just off the pathway about 2 meters up in a tree, stating that the one high up in the tree is for young people to look for, whilst the second one was for old people to take pictures of :lol: .

Here they all are as we found them for all to enjoy.
