Wildcats, Herons and Lapwings

Today’s selection of images have been added to the wildlife gallery. I found the African Wildcat whilst searching the Satara rest camp in Kruger National Park at night. I was specifically looking for wildcat and Honey Badger so it was nice to connect with this cat. No such luck with the Honey Badgers unfortunately. The Striated Heron was found at a small pool not far from Skukuza, the administrative headquarters of the Kruger. Finally the Yellow-wattled Lapwing was one of many seen in Sri Lanka, this one conveniently stood next to some Elephant droppings for scale!
