Did I say They love my binoculars ? I love them – what a difference to failing eyes – and birds birds and more birds

To start the day a Lanner falcon with prey in hand in front of my deck just looking at me and calling ; apparently completely at ease – my ‘camera (read iPhone)’ in my room – where are you when needed Fred 😩
The list is long but of note Sharon is the lesser jacana and the shoebill

What an amazing sighting
What an amazing bird
We sat 15m away for over an hour until the sun forced us to retreat

Large
Dodo like
Looking like it belongs to a different era – the bird a child would draw in their stories

Sadly my trusty iPhone wasn’t up to the task in the bright sun – Fred where are you when needed 😜
So worth every cent and discomfort
