South Africa (ZA)   A week at Ngwenya Lodge, Southern Kruger National Park  -  Categories: South Africa  -  @ 04:48:12 pm

Winter Birding - Ngwenya Lodge, Mpumalanga - 13 to 19 August 2011

After a hectic first half of the year, nothing like a break in the African bush to re-charge your soul. This year, we spent a week at our timeshare in Ngwenya Lodge (http://www.ngwenya.co.za/NGW/ngw.htm), situated on the southern boundary of the Kruger National Park, with our Unit overlooking the Crocodile River - bliss! Images by Mike Pope


13 AUG 2011
We had a comfortable drive from Johannesburg to Ngwenya dropping down from the chilly highveld into the more temperate loweveld in and around Komatiepoort. During the check-in formalities, I found a Spotted Flycatcher which appears to have over-wintered as these species are only now migrating through Kuwait.

Spotted Flycatcher

Foraging around the bottom of a shrub, was the normally shy Green-backed Camaroptera.

After unpacking the car and getting sorted in our Unit we relaxed over lunch and later in the afternoon had a stroll around the Lodge gardens finding a few old 'friends' like Dark-capped Bulbul

Dark-capped Bulbul

Lesser Masked Weaver, still in winter or non-breeding plumage - although I did observe some nest building action

Although I was rusty on some calls, that of the African Green Pigeon was instantly recognisable

At the small lake near the restaurant, a White-breasted Cormorant was seen

Looking out over the Crocodile River at the restaurant, a Nile Crocodile was catching the last rays of the day

As we got to our Unit, a small flock of Red Helmet Shrikes made a brief appearance

As the weather was great, we decided to spend the first day enjoying the Lodge and relaxing on our balconey overlooking the Crocodile River and we were rewarded with a great Lion sighting soon after waking up as a small pride wandered aloing the river bank

Birds that were flying up and down the river included; White-breasted Cormorant

The smaller Reed Cormorant

and many Egyptian Geese

in the thermals above the river, we had juvenile African Fish Eagle calling

in the scrub in and around our unit, I found a foraging Speckled Mousebird

the smart looking Spectacled Weaver

and a tatty looking Cape Weaver in transition plumage

and an African Mourning Dove which is not normally found this far south in the Kruger Park

after a lazy breakfast my son Jaden and I went for a walk around the grounds, finding a secretive Tambourine Dove

and an Ashy Flycatcher

Ashy Flycatcher

a stunning male Collared Sunbird was quite obliging in the coolness of the morning, not quite as much when the temperatures pick up later in the day

at this time of year, many of the Aloe's are in flower and many species of birds were seen feeding on the flowering blooms. The yellow of the flowers rubbing off on the feathers of their heads - here a Dark-capped Bulbul enjoying the nectar from the Aloe

Dark-capped Bulbul

at the small dam near the restaurant, an African Darter was sunning itself on the dead tree

I had found a Water Monitor late yesterday that Jaden really wanted to see. At this time of the morning it was still sunning itself on the bank of the small dam and Jaden got up close and personal

on the way back to our Unit, Jaden spotted a Kurrichane Thrush at the base of an acacia tree

South Africa (ZA)   Zaagkuildrift and Seringveld  -  Categories: South Africa  -  @ 01:09:10 pm

Winter Birding - Zaagkuidrift and Seringveld, Gauteng - August 2011

Whilst on our break in South Africa, I had arranged to meet up with my good friend Simon Price who I had met in Kuwait, but had since re-located back to South Africa. We spent a productive and enjoyable morning together and chose the Zaagkuildrfit to Kgomo-Kgomo route north of Pretoria - in my opinion, one of the best birding roads in Gauteng. Images by Mike Pope


We were at the start of the route, not too long after sun-up and spent some quality time at one of the small pans. There was definitely a feeling of Spring in the air, with early buds showing on trees and birds actively starting to show breeding behaviour. Walking slowly through the bush, we came across a rather obliging Southern Boubou

With a Rattling Cisticola calling nearby

moving slowly toward the edge of the pan, we observed African Jacana's as they foraged on the floating vegetation - easily done with those extremely long toes

A few duck species were seen on the dam, but only this flock of Red-billed Teals came close enough for a photograph

A single White-winged Tern was also observed hawking over the water

Walking back to the car, we flushed a Chestnut-vented Tit-Babbler

Driving westward along the dirt road with frequent stops also produced Crimson Boubou; a really striking bird in the drab winter bush with a call to match it's appearance

Crimson Boubou

a couple of Kalahari Scrub Robins

and a pair of Marsh Owls flying back to find a roost for the day

Some Waxbills were seen foraging on the edge of the road, one of them this female Violet-eared Waxbill. Unfortunately the spectacular male didnt stay long enough for his picture

Just before the Kgomo-Kgomo floodplain (still dry at this time of year), we finally managed to get onto a Magpie Shrike that didnt fly off when we stopped

On and around the floodplain we ticked, African Pipit

a striking Capped Wheatear, which normally disappear after winter

Kitlitz Plover

Lilac-breasted Roller, probably one of the most photographed birds in the Kruger National Park

and an Ovambo Sparrowhawk that had stopped for a drink

Viewing the floodplain from the bridge produced White-throated Swallow

As it happens in birding, time does get away from you so we drove slowly eastward back to the main road, finding a wing-tagged Cape Vulture that was being harrassed by a flock of Pied Crows

On the way back to Midrand, we decided to stop at the Seringveld, a unique broad-leave woodland habitat on the outskirts of Pretoria that holds some key species. Unfortunately, we were only able to find one of them (perhaps a little too early in the season for the others) - but Green-capped Eremomela is still a good bird, albeit a very busy bird gleening quickly through the foliage. After exhausting this patch, we reluctantly headed back and I truly appreciated the variety, calls and numbers seen this morning, in comparison to the barreness of Kuwait
