MALAWI ALBUM

 

The pictures below have all been taken by one of our group members, Cliff Buckton, on our most recent trip to Malawi and South Luangwa, Zambia.

 

Elephants crossing the river at South Luangwa.

White-browed Coucal

Southern Ground Hornbill. These were surprisingly tame. They are persecuted over much of their range as they are considered birds of ill omen.

Lioness relaxing at South Luangwa.

Saddlebill Stork

Grey-crowned Cranes. There were over a hundred in one flock.

Southern Carmine Bee-eater

Lizard Buzzard

White-fronted Bee-eater

Puku are scarce across most of their restricted range but are common at South Luangwa.

We saw three Leopards in three days at South Luangwa. This was not a waterhole stake out. It was thanks to the field craft of our local guide

Double-banded Sandgrouse. We got some great close-up views of this superb bird.

 

Bateleur

Four-toed Elephant-shrew. It was originally named after it trunk like snout but it is actually a relative of the Hyrax and Elephant.

It was great to have a day time sighting of a Leopard as well as the two at night.

White-backed Vultures at a Lion kill.

 

Stanley's Bustard at Nyika

Roan Antelope at Nyika in habitat reminiscent of the North York Moors!

Crawshay's Zebra at Nyika.

Red-winged Francolin

Bushbuck. Some were surprisingly confiding.

Square-marked Toad

Forest Double-collared Sunbird

 

Greater Kudu

Waterbuck

Wire-tailed Swallow

Pel's Fish-Owl. We had three sightings of this monster. It was incredibly close but flew to a more distant tree before Cliff had a chance to take this shot. One was also seen twice just by the lodge restaurant at Mvuu.

Little Bee-eater

 

Bohm's Bee-eater. This scarce bird was tame and common around the camp at Mvuu.

Lilian's Lovebird on Euphorbia at Liwonde.

White-browed Robin-chat

Crocodiles were very common at Liwonde and South Luangwa.

Liwonde has the densest population of Hippos in the world.

The dragonflies were fantastic but we did not have the literature to sort them.. just enjoyed them!

Black-collared Barbet

Pennant-winged Nightjar. We had repeat views of this superb species. This male was accidentally flushed from the ground on the first full day at Dzalanyama.

Black-headed Heron.
