My girlfriend and I had a breakfast birding run at Walter Sisulu today and she managed to get this photo of a very tricky bird.

Great sighting and picture. Did you find it at the hide? I want to use next weekend while I am in Gauteng to find this species.

Hi Michael,

you won't believe it, but it was actually right next to the restaurant, fishing tadpoles and small tilapia from those ponds there.
It was quite relaxed in the presence of everyone around it. Very unusual to see it like this.

Thanks Wildtuinman, in that case I will also have to plan a beer and breakfast on the outing. Eish, birding is hard work! Regards

Thanks for all the comments everyone, I will relay it through to my girlfriend, the photographer. :D

Michael, birding is a tough job, but sometimes we just have to do it and get it over and done with and carry on with our lives. <!-- s:lol: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_lol.gif" alt=":lol:" title="Laughing" /><!-- s:lol: --> <!-- s:lol: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_lol.gif" alt=":lol:" title="Laughing" /><!-- s:lol: -->
