Hello wildlife lovers.
I have added two new pages this week.
I will try to add to pages per week of new bird and animal species. This week I have introduced Coucals and Klipspringers.
A Burchell’s Coucal in flight over the reed beds in the Chobe River. Stunning red eyes and beautiful ochre -coloured wings.
The Coucal’s call is so distinctive, a watery flute-like sound which would impress any sax player.
I have found Klipspringers all over South Africa and the shots I have shown were taken in Mashatu, Kruger Park and in a rocky kloof at Eagle’s Rock . They are incredibly agile on what looks to be permanent tip-toes.
I hope you enjoy these two new pages. I have also added some shots to the Kingfisher and Heron pages.
