Kopano Lodge, Madikwe Safari Lodge. All a flutter...


This Yellow-billed Hornbill decided to share my breakfast.


Another first for me.
A Southern White-crowned Shrike.


A European Roller...
They are currently starting to arrive to
enjoy our Southern Hemisphere summer


A Lilac-breasted Roller.
The national bird of Botswana.


It used to be called the Grey Lourie.
It has been renamed the Grey Go-away bird.
If this was me, I would be really upset.


A couple of  Francolin settling down for the night


A Blacksmiths Lapwing on a nest


A Common Sandpiper patrolling the rocks.


One of my favourites...
A Pied Kingfisher.


In "dive" mode...


A summer visitor to this reserve...
A Little Bee-eater.


Okay, you got me...
This is neither bird nor mammal...
But what looks like a derelict piece from a movie or TV series
is actually a working toilet.
Just a pity that it can be seen from the road...


A Cape Glossy Starling surveying the horizon


No feathers but airborne


There was an emergency within the park while we were there,
and this chopper responded.


An Arrow-marked Babbler that I found watching me in camp


A good "spot" by my wife...


A Southern Red-billed Hornbill


My wife trying to fly...
