At the Athi Dam

By Will Knocker:

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

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….

  1. A great days birding – good to see so many White Storks as bad weather hit their breeding succes in Europe last season

    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 !! )
