I just sat down and read your sightings post. Missed it by that much. Hubby and his bandmate are practising this afternoon. Can't hear a thing on the cam. :shock: Longing for new laptop and earphones. Laughing out loud

Just popping in to drop a line and say hey!

Was watching ESPNews...a 24 hour Sports News channel, and they were talking about a football (soccer) match that took place in Johannesburg, SA, on Thursday. Seems the wind was soo bad, that it was blowing the advertisment boards onto the field! The footage shown made it seem like those huge advertisement boards (they were long enough to probably cover 6 people standing side by side) were meer pieces of paper blowing in the wind!! A few players and some fans were hurt, but none seriously, thank the heavens!! THEN they had to completely abandon the game when a freak storm moved in! I put the link to the actual story here. I just remember us all talking about the wind and the rain lately at the watering hole, and I know Johannesburg is not all that far away!

Fani, you are such a connoisseur! What a fantastic sighting, even the pelicans would have been enough for me Laughing out loud

Pelicans are rather common from late January until late March but for me ...is something ...different...It is the first bird that come back in the middle of winter to check the nests and start again a new reproductive cycle....It is a message from the spring Laughing out loud

The funny ...is that they put a platform into the lake ...for nesting and two pelicans were sitting there....Nooo nooo I dont believe that they interested to nest...just they had a rest there...They have put platforms in other lakes around too ...but Dalmatian pelicans return every year in Mikri Prespa where they breed in a mixed colony with White pelicans...But we are lucky as they use all the little lakes around to feed before sit at the nests

I saw very well the colours...Too brown upperparts to be a peregrine....to rufous head to be a saker and the uperparts was pale too....He he I don't believe I could ID it ...if I didnt study so hard before Laughing out loud Laughing out loud
