Walking with Skabby on the farm

 Dear Blogger friends. Skabby and I got out onto the farm road mid-morning today. At the dam, he dived in and I took photos. Apart from the regular geese and ibis', this time I managed to spot a Hamerkop and a Three-banded-Plover.

Unmistakable with its backward -projecting crest, resembling a hammer
Three-banded plover 
Egyptian Goose
Sacred Ibis

Happy Saturday to you all!
