Last Tuesday we had a day off and I took the opportunity to spend a couple of morning hours on KB road, where I hadn't been in ages. KB road has lost a little of its appeal in the last two years. I still like the area, but favor it for evening and night drives. During the day, and especially in the morning, I find the ever present bird catchers a little off-putting and prefer to go to quieter areas around Badas and Labi road.
Still, there is usually always something interesting to be seen. Driving up the road this purple heron was on a high look-out.
