Monday meltdown

It's been a very lazy day, with temperatures here hitting 40 degrees Celsius. We opted to stay in the hotel grounds, with the better half content with the kindle, and me with Marks' on loan scope - and a great bit of kit it is too.

Birdwise it's been quiet, but I've enjoyed a couple of new species - forest buzzard and horus swift, plus good looks at the standard village fare - alpine and African black swift, greater striped swallow, jackal buzzard, fiscal shrike, red winged starling, pied crow, cape bulbul, cape white eye, cape weaver, black headed heron etc.

With any luck the temperature will drop a little so we can get back out on the bikes tomorrow before heading back to Cape Town on Wednesday.
