I'm still searching Jan. The "Warbler" in your picture has a red eye ring, not a red eye it seems to me. I'm not sure that it is a Tawny-flanked Prinia either, because the Prinia also has a red eye. I'll let you know if I find something else. :wall:

Awesome little Malachite too! :clap: :clap:

Thanks for the comments.......... :dance:

Meandering Mouse appreciate your kind comment and hope I can add value by sharing my images with every one:dance: :dance:

Hilda agree it is not the same bird. The one with the red eyes,agree with Bushbuddies, it is a Tawny-flanked Prinia.

I have asked my brother (Almost 700 birds on his list) and he confirm the first one is a Great Reed Warbler

Over 3 days saw this heron catch several fish, each time he raced for the trees to escape the attention of fish eagles
