They are found mostly in the Western Cape province of South Africa and get their name from their thick leg feathers - see V2. They are our smallest Eagle. This one is non-releasable because of wing injuries.
Thanx again for your kind comments and votes on my Marsh Owl , especially to Maureen for her UA and Jeff and Willie for their lovely mods Smile
Have a great Wednesday !!

Another Master class Herman, brilliant image, love V1 but V2 is a close contender.............. I'm up early this morning, off to the hospital for my last test before I see the Consultant.

Yet another lovely morning and the forecast is good for the rest of the week; I'm loving this weather, you can't beat wall to wall sunshine, especially after this winter we have just had.

I have new neighbours; as I was returning home last evening after a visit to the local pub with a friend, I was dragged in to my new neighbours home because it is Ramadan [hope I have spelt that correctly] What a compliment, what a fantastic family.
