Good to see you back here, @xelas! And with some very good shots at that. Love your Pygmy Goose, such a beautiful bird.

Some really great shots, and Pygmy goos in Mkhuze is a great sighting @xelas.

 

However, your Glossy is actually a Hadeda. But I know you saw Glossy at Zibulo, so you can just swap it out...

Thank You, @Peter Connan ! Not every ibis with glossy feathers is a Glossy Ibis :rolleyes:.

I have been looking forward to the Zvezda and Alex bird collection from SA, very happy you started this. And well, you´ve got a far superior Pygmy Goose than me all over Botswana. Excellent stuff!

Great shots of all the Egrets. Stunning birds and good to see a Dwarf Bittern too.

I sense the tortoise looking over his shoulder now the starting gun has been fired.
