I as this with a certain amount of trepidation as I shall probably get laughed at, but could this (it was very small) be a Lesser Jacana (which, as far as I know, is not found in Kruger) or is it just a juvenile Jacana? Seen at Sweni Bird Hide in June.

Juvenile Jacana :thumbs_up:

I am still to see a Lesser Jacana but I have been told that they are absolutely tiny.
