Mpumalanga Birding
Near the town of Malelane, I turned off the main road to pass through sugarcane fields where Orange-Breasted Waxbills fed alongside Long-Tailed Paradise Whydahs and Pin-Tailed Whydahs. Reaching the security access, I overlooked a large dam where a pair of African Fish Eagles circled high overhead and Yellow-Billed Egrets hunted around its edges. Kittlitz and Three-Banded Plovers scurried around...

Northern Cape Birding
Pale pink Greater Flamingos waded in the shallows in their hundreds, while in the skies above v-flights of heavy-thumping winged Great White Pelicans flew in to land, sliding onto the water with feet acting as giant skids. In the shallows, Glossy Ibis, Marsh Sandpiper, Greenshank, Ruff, Common Ringed Plover, Grey Plover, Pied Avocet and Black-Winged Stilts all bustled around...

Western Cape Birding
As the first faint rays of light, over a distant horizon heralded the dawn of a new day, the rush hour began with a cacophony of sound and frenetic activity.
