Hi joekin,

Not much Is known about this birds habits within South Africa :) But as per Kruger Sightings, I know the first possitive I.D was along the Letaba River.....Im sure more sightings have been recorded, but I can't get onto Roberts Multimedia at the moment and give any further info.

All I do know is it's not going to be any easy task finding one, anywhere in S.A :D Northern & Central Mozambique are your best bet.

I see in Roberts about a dozen map indications for each of the following countries, South Africa (as far down as PE), Zimbabwe and Mozambique. Only the 1 dot in Kruger. Note: Majority of sightings of out-of-range records at high altitudes. Their main distribution being Sierra Leone to Kenya.
