Black headed Heron


First of all happy New Year to everyone and all the best for 2008. It was certainly the quietest Christmas and New Year’s that I have ever had – I quite liked it! The river has been filling up reluctantly and we have finally launched the boat and are able to get around at last. Yesterday I made a trip to our nearest town Mfuwe, which is about 2 hours boat ride away, and it was quite a shock to see people!

I am really looking forward to doing more photography from the boat and will start posting regularly again. The whole valley is now intensely and refreshingly green – quite a contrast to the usual dry and dusty scenery that most visitors witness. We are now into what the tour operators here call the Emerald Season – a very fitting description.
