Description:

There were a pair of birds - this images are of the same bird. It was flying very high and fast on I assume a thermal. I think they may be a pair of Black Eagles (verreaux's Eagle). However I'm not sure. I have see Black Eagles here but many years ago (+/_ 40 years) I'm a regular visitor to the park. When we first came here there were plenty of Dassies in the rocks near the coast - haven't seen one for years?
