Hi all.

Started off the morning with views of Little Bittern, Black-crowned Nightheron and Whiskered Tern at the first hide at Rietvlei.

Little bittern made another good showing at the hide and Red-knobbed Coots are feverishly nest building just in front of the hide.

Common Sandpiper just flew passed the hide calling like mad. It's flap-glide-flap-glide flight quite evident.

Wing-snapping Cisticola displaying at the start of the game drive. Red-collared Widowbird males proudly proclaiming territory and the ever present Rufous-naped Larks everywhere.
