286. Eurasian Kingfisher. A grey day, but the colours of three juvenile Kingfishers stood out beautifully.    

For this I thought I had quit ;): I hadn't, but I was not able to go out for quite some time. Fortunately this week I managed a little trip and even got some for my Big Year thread. 285. Common B

389. Great Grey Shrike. I went to try and see the Parrot Crossbill, but did not find them. Instead I got this one.   Well I also got a Nuthatch quite close (not counting) when the light

176. Bateleur. Seen almost every day in the Kgalagadi TFP, but the confrontation with the Tawny Eagle was the most exciting sighting. Taken from the car window near one of the waterholes.

Excellent action captures there Peter.
