@Peter Connan the surprise is that we have never seen one before - I sssume that they are quite common....

They are pretty common in some areas, so yes, that is a bit surprising!

Thanks to @Galana for pointing out that 64 is not a montagu’s harrier. After further investigation, it turns out that 64 and 65 are in fact the same bird, i.e. a juvenile Ovambo sparrowhawk. The sighting has got the Kruger birders excited....

 

i will renumber when when I next add a bird.

The photos have become a lot more detailed when you have posted the 7D2 one's. Your shots are making me regret selling mine now, kept the 5D3 instead ( but I also have a 1DX2 for faster fps)!

Thanks @Dave Williams

i’m still Not convinced about it. For close birds/animals yes, but anything further away, I still prefer the 5D3. Having only just finished my Zim TR, I am having a break before embarking on my Kruger TR, but we were not blessed with the weather this year and there were lots of disappointing results as It’s high ISO performance is not good. My hit rate was much lower this time, but this may have been complicated by the fact that the OH bought me a battery grip for Christmas, which made it much heavier...

 

i think that that I would upgrade to the 7D3 when it comes out first, rather than getting a 5D4
