08/03/2017 A snowdrop in the garden and more holiday photos all taken in KwaZulu-Natal..

Maximum temperature 15C, minimum 6C.  34km/h SW wind. 12 mm of rain measured this morning.
Snowdrops are in the garden.

Dragonfly; I think it is a Banded Groundling (Brachythemis leucosticta)

Not often you see these road signs other than Africa!

European Bee-eater, (Merops apiaster)

Nyala female, (Tragelaphus angasii)

Trumpeter hornbill, (Bycanistes bucinator)

Pelicans (Pelecanus) and in the background what I believe to be  Yellowbilled storks and an egret.

More pelicans with a Marabou stork (Leptoptilos crumeniferin the background

Flooded bridges in Natal.
