I love the Nyala and especially the male with its 'rugby socks'.

Lovely photo Jan :clap: and such an unusual sighting all the way down south. It used to be the case that they were only ever seen in the Shingwedzi/Punda/Pafuri areas. :thumbs_up:

Love the Woodies. :D

Thanks for the beautiful photo Jan, memories of them until next Summer :thumbs_up: I can't believe that summer has come and almost gone. It seems just the other day when we were asking if anyone had heard the calls of the first arrivals.

Wonderful pose by the Woodland kingfisher, Jan :clap:

Great to see the Nyala visiting and not just the Waterbuck and Bushbuck :D

I guess this is the Green-backed heron that lost that BIG fish :redface: ...Beautiful shot :thumbs_up:
