Sebayeng wetland outing - 09 April 2016
 
The morning started out cloudy, and at six o'clock when we arrived at the wetland, we were greeted by the day's first light as well as a huge flock of cattle egrets (Veereier) flying overhead!

Mkhombo Dam Outing
 
Ons is vroegoggend uit die vere waar ons mekaar 05:00 ontmoet het by die golfklub om die dag saam met ons toergids, Richter, die skaars swarstertgriet (Black-tailed Godwit) te gaan soek.

Chebeng Grassveld Outing

By ons eerste stop en ook deur die hele dag is ons gegroet deur Rooineklewe rike (Roufus-naped Lark) wat aanhoudend roep. Ons skop toe net daar af met 'n Donkerkoester (Plain-backed Pipit) wat redelik mak was en 'n paar van ons kon goeie foto's kry. ... [read more]
