I thought it was odd that I didn't get a hammerkop in the Kruger - I have just found it, even though the search tool didn't :o -1 from the score next time....

@Tdgraves, are you confident the last bird is not a White-necked Raven? Very difficult to tell from these photos though.

Never even thought of it @Peter Connan just saw big monochrome bird and jumped to conclusions. unfortunately these are the only two shots I have and looking at the bill, I just don't think it is big enough for a raven

They are pretty much the same size according to Wiki, but still, Pied is usually more common and I guess it doesn't really matter which one it is untill you get the other one?

The Gambia is the place for Pied Crows, very easy to find there.

FWIW I think the monochrome bird is a Pied Crow.The tail is quite long in the flying shot and the bill not massive enough..

But  as stated it don't matter at all unless and until the other subject is captured.

On to Kirstenbosch then. The evening before, when we arrived in Cape Town, there was a mass of black clouds and rain, so I was worried that this planned trip would be aborted, but we awoke to better weather, with only intermittent clouds. As it has been so long since we have been to the Cape and never looked at birds before, these are largely all new, in terms of definitely identifying them.
