Thanks again all. \O

I spent Saturday in the Park and stayed at Bateleur for the night.

The weather was not good for photography, but I managed a few shots of a spotted one...

At home right now, but heading in again this afternoon to spend the night at Shimuwini. Hopefully get a few more good sightings.
