Thank you, Jan :D

Stunning Squacco heron and they have such amazing colours :clap: :clap: :clap:

News flash from Cape Town is that a Squacco heron has been spotted in Bloubergstrand on the vlei opposite Dolphin's beach, which is near the Rietvlei area. If it stays there long enough, I hope to introduce myself to him sooner than later. :lol:
