After our recent visit to the Park .. we managed to tick off 79 birds ...

I know that's not a lot taking how many species of birds the Kruger has, but admittingly our attention was divided between the animals, bird and Castles <!-- s:lol: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_lol.gif" alt=":lol:" title="Laughing" /><!-- s:lol: -->

One of my friends did however to tick 5 new species and in the process reached his 300th bird tick ...

Some of the sightings I really enjoyed was a Scarlet Chested Sunbird? A barn owl .. And the Park is full of Woodlands Kingfishers ...

On another note ... I was quite .. how to put this mildly ... Unhappy to hear that [url=http&#58;//sahotspots&#46;myfreeforum&#46;org/profile&#46;php?mode=viewprofile&amp;u=120:alce0snl]Francois[/url:alce0snl] had the distinct pleasure to do some birding with Dr. Ian Whyte ... probably one of the most knowledgable people when it comes to birds and elephants in the park.

He left on Sunday with his list for the trip standing at 176 ... I'll make sure he posts some of his sightings ...

Congrats to your friend on reaching his 300th!

By the way, what's the Castles bit about?

Cheers

It's what happens when it's 35 degrees and high humidity .. to avoid getting dehydrated <!-- s:lol: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_lol.gif" alt=":lol:" title="Laughing" /><!-- s:lol: -->

The unfortunate side effect being that you are required to visit the "Ablution" quite often .. and having to hold it in because you can't exit your vehicle makes concentrating a bit difficult <!-- s:lol: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_lol.gif" alt=":lol:" title="Laughing" /><!-- s:lol: -->
