To see what we could see.

Took the camera and the dogs and I went to see what we could see. We didn't see anything very exciting, only some old familiar friends.




This family of Cape wag tails. They're on the spillway of the dam every day, so we hardly notice them any more.




Three proud Egyptian geese, mom, dad and junior.




This rather disreputable looking Ha de dah Ibis, preening itself. Seems I caught just after it's evening bath.




A black headed heron, also a regular on the dam wall.




A pair of yellow-billed ducks, paddling sedately together.




Three black-smith lapwings patrolling the edge of the pond for a last minute tit bit before bedtime.




A quiet, wooded glade, inviting one to linger a moment and enjoy the peace.




The imperious red-knobbed coot, who barely spared us a glance over it's shoulder.

It's great that you have so much variation in wildlife so near.
