  Paradise flycatcher
by grets

Fondest memory: With some time to spare before lunch, we sit on the terrace watching the many colourful birds that flit in and out of the trees. There are paradise flycatchers, bulbuls, various colourful bee eaters, eagles and cormorants, iridescent sunbirds, spectacular mousebirds, lots of very bold wagtails, woodpeckers, weavers, kingfishers, herons, a very noisy bird called fisco, kites, starling, buzzards and many, many more birds which go unidentified. David spots a large lizard scampering in amongst the undergrowth and there is a gerbil climbing up a stem. We have a terrific view of the lake and I feel so contented just sitting here observing the wildlife. The air is still and the only sound is the chatter, shrill, babble, trill, shriek, squeak, twitter and wail of the various birds found on this gem of a nature island.
