It has been fairly quiet again over the last few days but that changed when the news broke of southern Africa’s third record of a CITRINE WAGTAIL! The bird was seen on 3rd and 4th May at the Urikaruus Waterhole in the Kgalagadi National Park. The identity of the bird only became evident once the photographs were examined recently. This area is at a wilderness camp within Kgalagadi but you may want to obtain permission to visit the area if you are in the park to try to locate it again. The interesting aspect about this record is it appears the bird could be a summer-plumaged female bird based on the plumage characteristics that can be seen and from the input of European birders. This is a MEGA record and is worthwhile keeping an eye open for if you happen to be in the area! Please send any update if it is encountered again as there are many birders who would very much like to add this bird to their life lists!

My last day at work is Tuesday, so if enough nutters from CT want to share costs, I am game.
