We are staying in Orkney at a caravan park next to the Vaal River. It is our last stop before heading for home tomorrow. We are just relaxing before we plunge into tackling accumulated tasks at home. We have a lovely spot right next to the river and I am enjoying just watching the river and enjoying the bird life.
I fed our last half roll to the birds yesterday and enjoyed watching the interactions.
Crested Barbet. Just watching.
The sparrows took the most active part in the exercise
with some others joining in the fun.
The weavers were very good at swooping down, grabbing the bread and flying off.
Last night we heard the hooting of owls and managed to see the silhouette of two large owls sitting at the very top of a poplar tree but it was too dark and they were too far away to take photos.
Birds seem to have been a theme on our long holiday, from having our supper stolen by a sea gull to being attacked by a guinea fowl. We’ve camped among ducks and geese and enjoyed a number of wild birds along our way.
This is my last post for this holiday. Thanks to all who have been following our progress.
We have certainly enjoyed our long Cubby holiday, have marveled at all we have seen and experienced, enjoyed the company of family and friends and look forward to seeing more of our beautiful country at some future time.
