    Quite helpful and quite informative. Thanks kindly.

  2. Bryn says:

    Very nice, looking at that species list from Ndumo Game Reserve. I definitely need to make a plan to head to that area in the near future. Lots of lifers to be had up in that region.

  3. Mark Wing says:

    Ken, would be nice to have directions or a key to a map next to or in the content of each birding site?

  4. Anthony Stidolph says:

    Impressive list of places visited, Ken. You deserve to be classed among the great modern explorers. Stidy
    Still more to see though!

    • Ken says:

      Well so many of them have been with you Stidy! I would say I am the Stanley to your Livingstone.
      And there are indeed so many more places to explore! I’m trying to find the time & the money to do a trip to Etosha over and above our usual summer trips.

  • Thought of the Day

    John 15:16 – “You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you that you should go and bear fruit and that your fruit should abide, so that whatever you ask the Father in my name, he may give it to you.”

    Our Christian experience begins when the Holy Spirit starts working in our imperfect lives. An inexplicable restlessness and a feeling that nothing can give you the satisfaction you yearn for, could be the Spirit working in you.

    Even when God calls you and chooses you to serve him, there may be inner conflict and confusion because you are not always willing to do what God is asking of you.

    But this inner struggle is part of spiritual life … Commit yourself to God and open yourself to the inflowing of the Holy Spirit.

    It is by great grace that you were chosen by God to serve him and to live to the honour and glory of his name. Surrender unconditionally to the Lord and you will discover that your life gains new meaning and purpose.
