I had to check the large flocks of Amur Falcon very carefully as every now and then a Lesser Kestrel would put in an appearance, this one a male


Always a good time of year for seeing the francolins, spurfowl and Helmeted Guineafowl with their young


You can't miss this one during the summer months in the Kruger - male Red-backed Shrike


A regular outside our chalet at Ngwenya- Southern Black Flycatcher


Tawny-flanked Prinia


Possibly the commonest large brown raptor in Kruger - Brown Snake-Eagle


Seemingly more widespread this year than previously - Lesser Grey Shrike


European Bee-Eater


White-fronted Bee-Eater


One of the more recognisable summer calls in the Kruger - Woodland Kingfisher


Southern Carmine Bee-Eater


juvenile Saddle-billed Stork


female Amur Falcon


Red-billed Oxpecker


Maybe the most photographed and certainly the most photogenic subject in the Kruger - Lilac-breasted Roller

Philip,

With some of the guys trying to post 100 photos for 2010 and me being out of the country so much, I thought I'd try and cram my 100 into the 6-day Kruger trip. You tend to only photograph those subjects that will give good results, or better than you have for a particular species, and ignore many of the common species. I know that on most of my holidays these days it will be a rarity to photograph more than say 40 species. I just pretended that I had no photos and set out to photograph every bird that I saw - where possible of course.

So was the target realistically achievable or too ambitious, given that on a 6-day Kruger trip at this time of year I'd normally chalk up a list of somewhere between 180-210 species? keep following the posts to find out!
