The hammerkop (can be translated to hammer head) is normally found near water as it wades and catches small fish, tadpoles and anything else that happens to swim past. They nest in big trees and the nest is a mess of big branches and grass. When we stayed in Lesotho they used to fly around our house and scream at the Jackal who did not know why, but it turns out that jackals catch these water birds.

The vultures are hanging arount the area as some cows were struck dead by lightentng a while ago and the farmer left the carcasses for the wildlife to enjoy.
