We are still in the thick, lush, green season, so lion sightings remain few and far between. Filming has thusly been concentrated on all the other players: impalas, elephants, hippos, african fish eagles, golden orb spiders. The past few days Ive focused on the Pied Kingfisher and Giant Kingfisher. They are fascinating birds to watch. They will perch themselves in the trees along the waters edge, scanning the shallow waters for an unsuspecting fish. They fly straight out over the water, hovering dead still in order to select who they will ambush. They dive beak first towards the surface, piercing the shallows waters, ideally spearing their prey. They emerge fractions later, if empty handed they return to the air, to hover and attempt again. If successful, their prey is carried to a nearby branch/log/rock where they pummel it against the surface in order to soften it before consuming.
