Blood curdling and Peaceful


This morning was fresh and wet...

..cool and misty..

the bushveld air fragranced with the fresh smell of wild herbs and wet soil!

We had another millimeter of rain during the day and noticeably more water in the Xombana dam.

A Lion roared close by in the early hours of the morning, Black-backed Jackal howled and their calls came from everywhere. Call of the Fiery-necked Nightjar and the blood curdling scream of a Barn Owl could be heard.

Early this morning at daybreak the Woodland Kingfishers and Burchell's Coucal were also calling together with the chirping and chirruping tweets and tapping of the rest of the feathered family.

If you can't see you can still hear and all those happy sounds like music to the ear. It creates a sense of calmness! Therapy from the bush free of charge!

Many Lilac-breasted Rollers, Kingfishers Woodland and Brown-headed, Doves, Pigeons and Swallows sitting on wires and a couple of Pied Crows sitting on a pylon.

The end of the day @ Xombana Restaurant :

Tranquil and peaceful.
