Rangers Report January 2015

It’s hard to believe that the first month of the year 2015 has flown by so fast. Although I have to say, what a fantastic start to the New Year with all the great sightings and weather that we had! We had a few really hot days, where the average maximum temperature for the month was 30°C. There were many days where there was a lot of cloud build up, but then the hot sun just burned it off again. We did not have a...

Our first rain arrived when a massive thunder storm with strong winds came raging through the area. The wind was so strong that it even uprooted some big trees with ease. The average maximum temperature for October...

This month really felt like we were in heaven with the incredible and mind blowing sightings that we experienced. It was really like a beautiful puzzle, each piece just fitting perfectly together. This month a lot of the migrating birds like Yellow billed kites, Steppe eagles, Wahlberg’s eagles, Purple...
