Visuil poging - Club Ranch Safaris
 
Ons was weer vroeg uit die vere Sondagoggend 31 Augustus om een van die groot 6 (in voel terme) te sien. Vir sommige is die voel slegs 'n miete en vir ander 'n besonderse spesie wat lank onthou sal word nl. die Visuil. Ons was 9 opgewonde voelkykers wat die pragtige uil die dag gaan soek het.

Southern Limpopo Province Atlas Bash : 13 - 15 August 2014
 
The Limpopo Bird Guides under the guidance of Joe Grosel undertook another challenging atlassing session in the southern reaches of the Limpopo Province. The target area is situated in the largely rural but fairly remote south-western Sekhukhune district which lies east of Marble Hall and west of the Jane Furse settlement. Several coordinated atlassing sessions earlier in 2014 greatly reduced a large 'un-atlassed' gap in this region however at least 16 'virgin' and isolated pentads remained. ... [read more]
