Hi Bianca, Welcome to Project Noah. The spottings we all put on Noah is used for research and therefore the information submitted needs to be accurate. The co-ordinates above for the spotting is in Pretoria, while you say it was in Pilanesberg Nature Reserve. Can you please update the co-ordinates to reflect this?

This is a fantastic shot of a pied kingfisher, probably one of the best I've ever seen. Well done Bianca!
