This afternoon whilst working on the lapa at home I heard the raucous 'kek-kek-kek-kek' of a Giant Kingfisher and sure enough a female was on the perch in the pond at the bottom of the garden. Luckily the camera was with me and I snapped some pics before she was gone in a flash. I have been trying to get a pic of this character at the pond for months now so got really lucky!! Not too shabby to have as a garden bird! Hekpoort.
