So here we are with the next installment, hope you've been enjoying them..

Part One, Part Two, Part Three, Part Four, Part Five and Part Six are through these links (just click on them).

First up...

A Great Spotted Cuckoo, not really something I knew anything about until I saw it. What a fabulous hairdo this dude has!


These are Lesser Striped Swallows, not one of the one that migrates back here to the UK, it only migrates within Africa. I do love their streaked fronts.


This is the Burchell's Coucal, known as the 'waterbottle bird' as it's call sounds like water bubbling out of a bottle.


I'm going with Lesser Masked Weaver for this one but I'm not 100%, the weavers look quite similar and I find them hard to differentiate between so if anyone can help me out, please do.


The Wattled Starling, a new one for me, perched in the top of a tree I thought it didn't look like anything I had really seen before and it wasn't.


Next is the White-Crowned Lapwing, this one I always forget the name of and have to look up..


A female Knob-Billed Duck in a tree with a pair of Pied Kingfishers below and in the bottom right corner the nest of the Red-Billed Buffalo-Weaver.


The White-Browed Robin-Chat in a bird bath, (see, another 4 name) a beautiful bird and you can really see the white brow it gets its name from.


A little Three-Banded Plover, found at many of the lakes, dams and ponds in Kruger, so little you don't always see them straight away but usually present.


One more...

This is the Yellow-Billed Stork, you also see a lot of these at dam, rivers, ponds.

 

Hope you enjoyed this installment..
