276479924/8/20122727 nests including 3 green ones under construction. Much activity and female carrying nesting material. This is a significant increase from my previous count which was probably not accurate. I counted from a better angle using binoculars. Again saw Pied Kingfisher next to weavers.
280379929/8/20122626 nests including 5 green ones. This is a lovely site with much activity and I could see at least 4 males at work as can be seen on the photo. Repeat count
