A birding highlight at Golden Gate

This afternoon we were very fortunate to enjoy a quality sighting of one of South Africa’s rarest bird species here at the Golden Gate Highlands National Park: the Southern Bald Ibis.

    Uitsonderlike foto! Dankie vir die deel. Ek het die afrikaanse woord opgekyk: ” Kalkoenibis.” Nogals mooi. Maar ja, hulle kom nie hier in die Limpopo voor nie. Lucky you!

      Baie gelukkig, dankie Spokie! Hoe ver is Graskop se wereld van julle af? Ons het die kalkoenibisse al voorheen daar by Bourke’s Luck raakgeloop – weliswaar nou nie Limpopo nie, maar darem naby!

      Thanks a lot Barbara! I agree with you entirely about how difficult it is to photograph birds, they never sit still! I have huge respect for the photographers who’se images are used in bird guide books, they must be very talented and very patient!
