Day 7 was our trip back to Joburg and we took our time to explore the Tonteldoos Conservancy and although we did not see a Wattled Crane which the project is focussed on, we did see Southern Bald Ibis and Malachite Sunbird which in my ignorance I thought at the time was a Gurney's Sugarbird. I was rather disappointed when I realised that it was "just" the Malachite but with an eclipse/transitional tail. A Bokmakierie in full song was a treat but it was a long way away and the pic is dismal.

I know that many of these pics would be "deleters" for more professional and better equipped photographers, but I am loving the challenge birding presents and have found that it is a great way to involve the family and make memories along the way.
