25/09/2010 in Tulha, SAANR

Morning in Tulha was very pleasant because so many raptors landed to drink from the pool. Vast majority of the raptors were Steppe Buzzards. Others were: Booted Eagle 2, Crested Honey Buzzard 1, Pallid Harrier 2 and Sparrowhawk 1.

Dark morph juvenile Crested Honey Buzzard (Pernis ptilorhynchus) Rashed Al Hajji et. al. found the bird on previous day.
