I didn’t have any internet connectivity for the last two weeks I was on site, so here is a bunch of pics to end off this post. I will start a new thread in three weeks when I return to Mozambique.
Some more birdlife:
Yellow-billed hornbill
Image
Southern Carmine Bee-Eater
Image
Lesser striped Swallow
Image
White-bellied sunbird
Image
Black-headed heron
Image
Namaqua Doves
Image
Red-billed Quelea’s
Image
Lizard Buzzard
Image

Mammals:
I think this is a Slender Mongoose. It was standing on its hind legs watching me take pictures of the sunbirds. Unfortunately I didn’t focus the camera properly on it and didn’t get very good shots.

Baby Scrub Hare
Image

Various Wasps are coming out:
Cuckoo Wasp
Image
Delta lepeleterii
Image
Delta emarginatum
Image
Polistes sp
Image

Image

Sarcophaga sp
Image
Robber Fly
Image
Damselfly
Image
Lycosidae sp
Image

And lots of trees and shrubs coming into bloom, turning the bush into a Palette. Hopefully there will be even more out when I return.
