Description:

Some Interesting Observations - Shamvura Camp and Kavango Region.

Summary / Notes:

Over the past years there have been a number of significant changes in the habits of several bird species, particularly noticeable in the northern reaches of Namibia. They appear to be closely connected to the, now quite obvious, climatic differences experienced all over the world today. Temperature data collected personally from this area over a continuous period of some fifteen years clearly indicate significant rises which presumably contribute to the birds' changing habits. Some now seem to prefer over-wintering here rather than enduring the arduous migratory journey to the northern hemisphere or the warmer regions of central Africa every year around April with the onset of our winter.
