We saw a lot of these little birds during our nightly drives between Shingwedzi and Batleur during the KNP Birding Weekend. This is however the only photo I could get of one of them.

I am not sure if I am permitted to post "non-SANParks" photographs on this forum. Could the forum moderator please "call me to order" if it is not permitted?

Thanks!

These guys are all over the Biyamiti Area.....As wel as Senegal Lapwing...The Private Road going past the camp...A sure bet for both..Obviously The Courser most likely at dusk, but often near the Resivoir resting amongst the Lapwing during the day.
