Hi Jan. 2 questions for you if I may. Are you still using your Canon 1d with the 400 lens. You graciously have me that info in the Kingfisher thread.

Secondly, hope to be doing a birding trip with my teenage son in December, and have chosen Skukuza as our camp because of its proximity to LP. Do you have a personal preference for the time of day you like to visit the Hide, or is it a random visit based on the route of your drive for that day?

It's early - but we've already got the old map out and started to look forward to it.

Regards
Horrace

Yip... still the Canon 1 D Mark iv with my reliable 400mm lens......... :dance:

For sightings you can visit LP the whole day.....but for photography the best light is in the afternoons.... :thumbs_up:

I spend many hours at LP in the afternoon.........very hot in December but very active........ :thumbs_up:
