Another enjoyable Sunday morning in the park.

First up today, a Wood Sandpiper.

Image

The next one is common, but I don't often see them, a Common Duiker.

Image

And them my first baby for the season. After this one I saw another six, there are a lot of very pregnant ewe's out there still.

Image

This one had a very close encounter of some kind.

Image

And a Southern Grey-headed Sparrow.

My guess would be.... touch, pause, engage... =O: =O: =O: Too much rucking and scrumming are known causes of cauliflower ears. =O: =O: =O: Shame, it looks weird, but superb images, as always.
