Ser­val for break­fast

go! - - Letters Upfront -

We vis­ited the Kruger Park in June. One of the high­lights was a morn­ing game drive from Maroela Camp. A mar­tial ea­gle sat in a tree right above us with a ser­val that it must have caught just be­fore we ar­rived. First it ate what looked like the brains – we could hear the noise as it crushed the cat’s skull! Af­ter rip­ping off the pelt, it even­tu­ally started to eat the body. Watch­ing the show was gory but fas­ci­nat­ing. What a pow­er­ful bird. AN­DRE FOURIE, Swakop­mund
