:hmz: Looks like a sub adult blacksmith lapwing to me, but I am not sure. The toes are not long enough Heksie.

I Heksie, I would say that this us one of the hybrid White-crowned x Blacksmith Lapwings that have been hanging around in the Skukuza area.

I'm not 100% sure about this one. I'm guessing that it's a juvenile, but not sure which, possibly blacksmith plover? Seen in KNP in early November 2014.
