We have had some great sightings of big cats recently, and there has been lots of plains game around. But what do you do when the sightings are few and far between? Well, then you grab the binoculars and turn your attention to our feathered friends large and small!
A quick tally gives me a total over just over 110 different species of birds we have seen on the plot, of which 75+ have been seen in the direct vicinity of the lodge. In fact, as I am typing this there is a Black-chested Snake Eagle in a tree on the koppie that is visible from the patio.
So for todays blog here are some of the more colourful birds seen in the garden.
