Impala in the Akegera National Park .


Maybe a species of Vulture on the Bank building opposite our hotel
 Definitely related to a blackbird or thrush (Ed - An African Thrush - Turdus pelios - Thanks Paula!)

 Two species of weaver birds

 A weaver bird's nest

 A water Buffalo complete with oxpecker

The gecko is amazing but the particular fascination for me is the birdlife. And to think I was excited when I saw a mixed flock of blue, coal & great tit with nuthatch, greenfinch & robin thrown in! Imagine seeing an Eagle in a town.

PD - definitely Turdidae - maybe Turdus tephronotus or T pelios
