Flag Expeditions, Limpopo, Nigel Shaw, Raptors

March 15, 2012 - "We had only been away from the airport in Johannasburg for about 30 mins when the landscape opened up. Once vast grasslands, home to thousands of gazelles and acompaning cheetas, this farmland is slowly being reclaimed bu scrub and acaicia. Hundreds of Amur falcons and Lesser kestrels use the poles and lines along the road to hunt the vast amounts of grasshoppers and other insects. Other raptors like the Greater kestrel, an African species also utilizes the area and rodents abound for the taking.
