20 April 2013 – more socialising than birding…
Since it seemed to be a clear morning, we decided to visit Intaka to take advantage of the good light and do some photography. We arrived fairly early and went straight to the hide where we spent the next few hours.
Unfortunately, activity was very low and there were not too many confiding subjects to practice our techniques on. We managed to get some reasonable shots of Malachite Kingfishers and also, a fairly friendly Lesser Swamp Warbler but, other than that, there really wasn’t too much to photograph at all. Fortunately, there were quite a few other people in the hide, so it turned into more of a social event than anything else as we all kept ourselves entertained with long chats in between the infrequent bird sightings…:)
By 10h00, the light was starting to get a little harsh, so we packed up and headed off for breakfast down at Blouberg beach, a rather relaxed morning with very little returns.
