Some of the highlights of the November/December issue of African Birdlife magazine

  • After an absence of many decades, Ostriches are once again gracing the dunes of the Sahara. Conservation organisations and the Chad government collaborated to get this ambitious – but tricky – reintroduction project off the ground.
  • A remarkable sequence of images captures the moments a leopard loses patience with a Hamerkop intent on cadging titbits from a carcass.
  • In an evocative portfolio, Warwick Tarboton highlights the abundance of birdlife at Nylsvley Nature Reserve after a summer of above-average rainfall.
  • The BirdLife South African Taita Falcon Survey Team went in search of this elusive raptor in Niassa Special Reserve in Mozambique. The results are intriguing!
  • After monitoring nesting Narina Trogons for three seasons in the Eastern Cape, Pierre Hensburg’s observations reveal how challenging the breeding cycle can be for these striking birds.
  • Reviews of two new and desirable pieces of equipment: the Zeiss SFL binoculars and Swarovski’s ATC 17–40×56 travel scope.
