Some more first timers for me in Rietvlei...

African Black Duck

Pin tailed Wydah

I think this is a rufous-naped lark - I sat listening to it's sharp calls... ^Q^

And then I fooled around with the swallows diving down and flying close to the road... -O

and an encore for STF's Mallard - she is beautiful ;-)

Have only just managed to catch up now.

Nice pics everyone.

Joan and I are going very early Saturday morning to try catch some dawn shots.
