A good mouthful for the Pied - wonderful photo Jan and thanks for sharing all your beautiful photos with us.

Love the Thick Billed Weaver MarijeNL. I have never seen one but know they are sometimes seen at LP, so will be keeping my eyes peeled. Thanks for the beautiful photos.

Oh I just love these little guys.
Thanks for sharing Jan, you do wonder though how they fit a fish that size inside their little bodies, especially a chick. :lol:

Beautiful Jan. The pattern on their wings is stunning and you have captured that perfectly and with a reflection and splash in the water too.

I have a long list of those inhabitants at LP that I want to be there when we are there, :lol: :lol:

20 days before you get to the park??? :dance: :dance:
We have got 16 days, but we start off at Punda :dance: :dance:
