A small selection of the birds of Pilanesberg National Park in South Africa. Really must get back over there at some point, fantastic place.

Twas a windy day down at Bettys Bay, South Africa. We had mainly gone to see the Penguins that reside there (and I have to admit much better views of Penguins that at the more popular Boulders Beach). The Cape Cormorants also nest down there and gave some impressive fly-bys. The Cape cormorant or Cape shag (Phalacrocorax capensis) is a bird endemic to the southwestern coasts of Africa. Such beautiful birds, especially the colours around the face.
