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!

    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 !! )
