Description: A flock of Queleas that had been foraging on this field disappeared into the reeds and in their place appeared this Lanner. The attack seems to have been unsuccessful. A totally disprespectful and unsympathetic stork then strolls by.

Description: Caught a dove shortly afterwards (behind a bush, otherwise I would have had photos). The Lanners were great fun for just sitting and watching. They would have two or three perches around a waterhole (offering a view of the hole) and suddenly storm the waterhole (using a bush to mask the initial flight). Suddenly the waterhole would erupt in a mass of finches, doves, sandgrouse (they tend to drink at different times!) and the Lanner would come streaking in.
