At the Athi Dam

By Will Knocker:

Pictures from the Athi Dam: surely one of the best corners (amongst many)  in NNP:


Yellow-billed storks, with an African spoonbill in the background..


Why O why have KWS allowed pylons to be built & the ENTIRE Athi Basin aesthetically spoilt in an undeveloped area (ie this would be a perfect place for future tourist development) ? Who allowed this? So short-sighted….


Diederik cuckoo: what a beautiful bird!


Egyptian goslings have to beware……


The aptly-named Black-winged stilt ….


European storks have been numerous this year….


And this is for you to ID: sorry out of focus…..palearctic migrants….ruffs??

    I love the DiedeRIK bird. I hate the pylons. Maybe they can disguise them, like they do in Namibia with 3G masts ? (ofcourse better NOT te place them but if they do…disguise !! )
