Stunning pics! They really are photogenic aren't they?

I looked back at our sightings book but we only recorded one of our sightings :slap: on the S37.

In 2010 we recorded a sighting on the Shimuwini private road.

We didn't realise they were so uncommon in Kruger.

Photograph the many times in the KTP but this is my first image from Kruger. Taken last weekend on the gravel road above Tsokwane

Saw 2 Secretary birds in the Satara area during our May/June 2014 trip.
One had made a kill... Raptor swooped down and tried to steal it.

Was wonderful to observe the interaction and view the behaviour displayed by them.
