October Limpopo Raptor Run 2014

I picked up Doctor Richard Charles at the Pilansberg National Park and we set off north for the day.
Fist off we got an adult Pale-chanting Goshawk for a warm up, funny, but it was the only PCG we saw just about all day!

An hour or so later we came across a juvenile Black-chested Snake Eagle which came to the trap without any nonsense.

Then 10 minutes later another! This time a 2nd year bird. Obviously the fields are yielding some good seed-rodent-snake activity!

And last up a Black-shouldered Kite. Not a huge amount of birds, but a great day which required ample re hydration at the lodge that evening!
