So pleased for Namibia. Here in Zimbabwe the same, and the big winners are the animals.
Nothing evokes the feel of Africa more than a dirt road disappearing into a massive storm. Joos please wont you get that printed on canvas and I will be your first customer, please. PM me when you are ready.
Thanks,
Kevin

Well, thank God. So the crakes will winter well in the Limpopo River valley. I have a young spaniel to train next year, and crake is the perfect subject for that. And oddly enough, they winter in south-east Africa.

Happy days for Namibia ! Last time, 2019, it was terribly dry. We were management hunting. We reached our Quota and the PH told us to carry on. Specifically targeting the animals that go down first in drought conditions, Hartebeest and warthog.
Looking forward to getting back whenever we can travel again.

I consider myself a bird guy and felt foolish I didn’t know what a crake was-thank goodness for google! My favorite thing about Africa is the enormous diversity of wildlife, glad they got the rains to replenish their land-hope the rain makes its way down to the Cape Town area of south africa

Hi Spike, you are obviously following the Kariba levels as I am, and although the lake is not unusually full for this time of year at about 28% generating capacity, what is unusual is that the filling cycle has started about a month early and is rising steeply. If the Zambezi comes down big time the only course of action they have is to open all the turbines south and north bank. If the dam overtopped it wouldnt be serious on the south bank because of the abbutment, but north bank is straight wall to gorge so an erosion problem. Let's get lots of rain, but no surprise cyclones joining in!

Hi Bob, how's things going in Wyong?. Down your way a couple of years back but haven't been in NSW since Ebor for the fishing. just getting over some nasty storms up here in Qld, seeing the sun for the first time in a few days. I'm going to NZ in the spring and hope to clean up a few buns while there and perhaps shake the spiders out of my old .303LE (currently owned by my BIL). Cheers Brian

Heard you may have load data for the 500 Jeffery,.....any info would be appreciated. Was thinking 535gr, but already had a response that the 570gr would be a better way to go, not sure why.
