Kanonkop Magic

Sixteen walkers ventured out this morning to walk over Kanonkop and down Adder’s Ladders in Fernkloof.  We could not have picked a better day, cool in the shade and warm in the sun, with not a breath of wind and beautiful clear skies.

As left the car park we were rewarded with a very good sighting of an African Goshawk, which came and perched within metres of where we were standing.  Later, on the slopes of Kanonkop, we put up a small flock of around eight Grey-winged Francolin, and then, to cap it all we had very good views of a Verreaux’s Eagle perched on a rock above us at Adder’s Ladder.

Of course, the flowers were also good and we were lucky to have Sandy along to do the identification.
