21 February 2007 With SABirdnet abuzz with sightings over the past few days of a Red Phalarope at the Ruighoek Dam in the Pilanesberg National Park, I decided to go and see if I could add this lifer to my list.

Hadeda Hide, Marievale Bird Sanctuary

Written by Neil Gray   

16 February 2007. Why do I keep going back to Marievale? Well, its an ever-changing environment. After my last two very disappointing visits with hardly a bird to be found, yesterday morning I sat for three hours in Hadeda Hide spell-bound by the sheer numbers of both birds and species, and the frenetic activity in the area immediately in front of the hide - and nowhere else along that 2km long stretch of water between the new south gate and the old entrance road.

1 February 2007. I spent a very rewarding day yesterday birding in the Wakkerstroom district. Having dipped on the big three specials on my previous visit two years ago, I went again to try my luck with Botha's Lark, Rudd's Lark and Yellow-breasted Pipit.

Ngwenya Lodge and Kruger Park
Saturday, 20 January 2007 16:55
Written by Neil Gray   

19 January 2007. My wife and I have just returned from our annual week away at Ngwenya Lodge, near Komatipoort in Mpumalanga province. Ngwenya is only 12km and a 15-minute drive from the Crocodile Bridge entrance gate to the Kruger National Park, so we spent only one day at Ngwenya and made five day trips into the Kruger Park.

Hotazel & Molopo Nature Reserve
Sunday, 05 November 2006 17:00
Written by Neil Gray   

1 November 2006. Just back this evening from the Kalahari. I had returned to the Hotazel field camp after 3 weeks away to find that the old woodpecker nest-holes in the camelthorn above my trailer that I had hoped might be occupied by the African Scops-Owl had been re-inhabited by a pair of Bennett's Woodpeckers (see Hotazel gallery). A pair of Cape Glossy Starlings that seem to think the camelthorn belongs to them, chase the poor male unmercifully whenever he puts in an appearance.
