I have not been able to fully catch up, as we only got back yesterday, but wanted to pop in and let you know Jan that the Fish Eagle, Juvenile Fish Eagle and Squacco were all ready waiting for me when we got there. :thumbs_up: :D

My photos dont compare to these stunning examples in this thread, but I spent some really enjoyable hours being challenged. :lol:

I will catch up as soon as time allows. :D
