The following birds were photographed at Keerwal close to Biyamiti. Love the reflection in the water.

Have a lovely picture of one that we saw the day before yesterday at Pioneer Hide.
Sadly I will have to wait till we're home to post it, as my signal here is too weak to upload to Flickr!!

I saw these birds at Vervoerdam in KNP a few days ago.
I have been wracking my brain trying to figure out what they are. The blackish stripe at the end of the wing and tail is totally throwing me off.
Could anybody help please? I feel as if it should be something obvious and I'm missing it! :x Sorry for the poor quality of the pic.
