While according to my Newman's, it doesn't occur in KTP, this looks to me like a tawnyflanked prinia?

Seen in KTP on 22 February 2010.

Kalahari Scrub Robin (Erythropygia paena)

Found in southern Angola, Botswana, Namibia, northern South Africa, and Zimbabwe, where it occurs in sandveld with low trees and scrub, on the edges of woodland, and in savanna. The species is common and not considered threatened by human activities.

Kieliekrankie, KTP

I was surprised that there's not a topic (or did I miss it? :redface: ) for this bird, so here are a few from my visit to Mokala in late October 2012.

Hi Arks, unfortunately you missed it.

It is a Kalahari Scrub-Robin. :wink:

I am looking at the photos on my phone, which is not ideal, but I reckon it is a Kalahari Scrub-Robin.
