The guidebook says Brown-hooded Kingfisher occasionally fish and I've caught it catching my Koi from the pond this week! White-crested Helmet Shrikes pass through the garden more often now. The masked weaver has builb 9 nests in the Flamboyant Tree but only two females have reared chicks in them and the male kas stripped my palm trees from almost all there leaves for nesting material. The Diederik Cuckoos are mating and a couple tumbled to the grass a few feet from me completely oblivious of my presence.
I photographed this Cape Buffalo who was part of a herd of 300 animals which crossed the road betwwn Letaba and Mopani camps during our viist to the Kruger park in August.
