Birding can be fun

Up at four, on duty, a lecture, path building and a mammoth fitness session all took its toll so I skipped dinner and was in bed by 19.30.

Today was the start of our week long birding course. By the end of it we should be able to ID by sight and sound eighty birds.

We divided into our usual two groups for our game drives. By the end of the day our list of birds identified was. It’s more fun than it sounds and I got super competitive. Mind you it does look very geeky when the Landy stops and everyone raises their binoculars in unison.

Just missed a rock python at the shower block.
