Where to see Abdim's Storks in KNP in february

Hi everyone,

Preparing my forthcoming trip, I have been browsing the internet for clues about where to see some birds in Kruger but found nothing about Adbims...
Any input welcome :)

Hi WackoRhino,

Abdim's Stork is listed as a scarce and uncommon species in Kruger. Personally I have never seen it in Kruger. Areas north of Pretoria such as Rust-der-winter is a good area to find them.

Thanks Wtm for the info !

The Kruger birdlist has an uncommon status for Adbim's, but considering your experience maybe "rare" would be more accurate...

Hi WackoRhino.. It might be old news by now, but I have seen one in 2013 at Renosterpan off the H3
