A month of monochrome memories: Hunting Little Egret

Austin Roberts Memorial Bird Sanctuary is a haven for several kinds of herons and egrets, going about their business rather unperturbed by the presence of human spectators. The hunting technique of the black heron we enjoyed close-up views of there was a special treat, and quite unlike the side-ways bobbing head movements employed by this hunting Little Egret in zoning in on its prey.

Our end-of-year 2015 holidays were absolutely packed to the brim. Apart from our ten-day visit to the Kruger National Park (read more about our time at Lower Sabie, Olifants and Shingwedzi in December), we also made day trips to five other reserves, and will be sharing photos from those (except Suikerbosrand, which we introduced in a post all of its own) daily through the month of February, in a series we call “a month of monochrome memories”.
