Hi All,

Took a drive around Marievale this morning and then up to Rietpan (located in the hills to the back of Nigel). Managed to get these pics of an African Crake:





Cheers,

Nice to see Rietpan is a good site this year again!!! When we discovered it last year I was sure it would add up to something in the summer years of good rains...

Nice to see that the African Crake its not a legendary species that is confined only to bird-books <!-- s:lol: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_lol.gif" alt=":lol:" title="Laughing" /><!-- s:lol: --> (like fluff tails)

we were lucky enough when I lead the Kruger Weekend at Serheni in Feb this year to have a long 15 minute scope view of an African Crake preening itself in the open.

Cheers,
Doug.
