Hi Jo

You live in the right neck of the woods to see one. I have spotted them at both Mkuzi and strangely enough at Ithala game reserve right next to the chalets..... I still remember him being so confiding, sitting in the open at spitting distance, and ME WITHOUT A CAMERA <!-- s:banghead: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/banghead.gif" alt=":banghead:" title="Frustration" /><!-- s:banghead: -->

Isn't it so funny funny how you see great birds when you don't have your camera <!-- s:banghead: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/banghead.gif" alt=":banghead:" title="Frustration" /><!-- s:banghead: -->

Ithala, is near Vryheid which is probably about 5hrs from me, I am closer to Dbn. I have seen them at Imfolozi and at Mkhuze but always in such bad light that no proper photo could be taken. One day, I'll get it!
