Pygmy Falcon

Getting near to going home time but we are still touring round. Now we are on the Orange river…. which is actually green at the moment. Yesterday on our way from Springbok to Uppington we detoured to the Augrabies  Falls, which are on the Orange river. Absolutely amazing scenery and there is a game reserve, part of which was accessible to us in a non 4WD vehicle.  On the way round we saw this little bird of prey. A Pygmy Falcon, it only weighs about 60grams

What a little gem
