Thanks all !

There are not only water birds. Lots of other species in the forest and bush. Unfortunately, I did not see rarities (I was there in winter, maybe it does not help, I hope to be able to go back during summer).

They might not be rarities, but to get a decent shot of a Purple-crested Turaco is not at all easy 0*\

They are all lovely pics ^Q^ ^Q^

Dingwe - I seem to recall there were "issues with the fences"
Has that now been resolved?

Nice photos [O]
