My name is Andrew Pickles and I am a Wildlife and Nature Enthusiast. My main subject is Birds and Bird Ringing, but enjoy anything to do with Nature. This blog is to showcase some of the wonderful animals and birds within Southern Africa and especially in my home area of Southern Kwazulu Natal. I am currently working on Barn Swallow migration between my home patch of Umzumbe and Europe, with a possible link to Chernobyl, news of this can be obtained on my website listed under the links.

Water Thick-Knee (Dikkop)
Whilst attending the inter coservency quiz at the Crocodile Farm in Ramsgate I was able to photograph this Water Thick-Knee amongst the crocodiles. Anyone looking to see this species should look at the crocodile farm as normally there are quite a few Thick-Knee's to be seen.
