The last time I came up to the Magoebaskloof region, an area of Afro-montane forest and plantation, I was with Charlotte where we saw plenty of FB's even catching 4 birds.
SO the plan was to have another go over the same time period. Our first visit was with my two girls, Grace and Kara-Mae, 11 and 8 respectively.

However the day was saved by catching and ringing a Lizard Buzzard, which Grace ringed, and Kara released, very chuffed too!
Next day we toured the small trails and back tracks in search for Forest Buzzards, saw a couple of distant Jackal Buzzards and Long-crested Eagles, but not catchable.
