And another one. Seen in Golden Gate in tall grass mostly. My first thought was the Red-capped Lark but the colouring seems "wrong"?

Juv Stonechat. All chat juvs look much different from the adults, mottled and full of spots. Nice shot!

Hi Wingman,

Looks like a Juvenile Stonechat. I'm unfamiliar with your other Juvenile chat's in that area, but it's somewhere for you to start looking from.

Thank you Barcud I was of a similar opinion as there where a number of stonechats in the area in various stages of growth.

Hi all

This one could be a female African Stonechat, but being a relative beginner birder, this is a long shot!!
