This week’s Video Thursday is a real treat. Why? Aquavision has done it again! The next edition of their “It’s All About the Wildlife” series at MalaMala is dedicated to our feathered friends.

Vivid colours and flights of fancy make this lighthearted clip an uplifting one. Wherever you are, take to the skies with the birds of MalaMala.

‘Twitchers’ find their Mecca at Mala Mala with the hundreds of species of birds which are recorded regularly. This is due, in particular, to the vast and varying habitats which have been diligently managed for over 50 years. The patterns of bird sightings are never constant, and there are often rare surprises to thrill the most seasons of ornithologists.
