Thanks, Johan :thumbs_up: First time I've seen this one in Darling.

Also wondering whether you saw my further question about those whimbrels?

Nope... I don't see any question I want to take a shot at at this link. I certainly cannot answer if your memory is flagging (misremember) :lol:

Thanks, JvR. A whimbrel would be a new tick for me, but I think that I must wait for a more 'definitive' view before adding it to my list. :D

Nice shots everyone!

They can be quite common in the Skukuza area in winter. Snapped this one at the Skukuza day visitors'.

Here are several birds that I am struggling with. I have an idea for three of them but may be well off base. Any assistance is appreciated...

huntsman, can you perhaps tell us where and when you saw these birds, location and time of year are helpful information needed for ID.
