The birds

Flying along the pit wall Hunting lizards and insects
One interesting aspect of the darkness generated by the eclipse, was noticed by the birds before I did. Normally birds can be seen flying all over the newly mined open pits. Suddenly during the period of darkness the birds appeared to vanish no where to be seen in the air, they had gone to ground.
