This female nestling was tagged on the 12th of October 2017 at the Olifants River Private Game Reserve on her nest and has since been quite a globetrotter travelling through Mozambique, Zimbabwe, South Africa, Swaziland and all the way to the Okavango Delta in Botswana! We’ve enjoyed watching her explore southern Africa so we decided to name her ‘Artemis’ after the Greek goddess of wildlife and the patroness of hunters.
