Have not been there for some time and thought I paid another visit before the migratory season is over. Hit pay dirt early when at the main hide just after the main bridge, spotted a Collared Kingfisher which was close enough for a nice shot. The best part was when we came back it was still there and this time with a partner. 2 for the price of one!
There were the usual suspects, the Plovers and the Egrets and the Milky Stork.
A bit disappointed that I didn’t see any woodpeckers or snake but was excited when some visitors informed that they saw a crocodile up on the bank just a short distance away. So we went crocodile hunting but couldn’t find it. In the end though, we managed to see 2 of them at the usual place under the main bridge.Then there are the usual monitor lizard which are often mistaken for the crocodile or worse still, Komodo Dragon. Most time we see them in the water but high up in the tree?
Another animal that is always up in the tree – the cute little squirrel.
Spotted a fly on the ledge of the Tower and it didn’t fly away even when people moved nearby. Changed to a macro lens and got this close up.Wanted to take more shot of this since it was such a quiet and cooperative model but M was shouting excitedly about some bird on a tree and so when to take a look. I think it is a Olive backed Sunbird but it was so far away and this is the best that I can managed.
All in a rather fruitful morning out there.
