WTM - I followed your other thread about where to see certain birds, so am interested where you saw the Temmick's courser.

WildThing, there were at least 5 at the Tihongonyeni waterhole on the Capricorn loop, north east of Mopani.

I also added African Quailfinch an White-fronted Plover to my Kruger list - 329.

Hi WTM

I got them both in Letaba camp. I think the flycatcher is typical winter movements along the riparian zones.

We were in Letaba on Thursday.

Only manage to find African Paradise Flycatcher. Where in Letaba did you get the Blue-mantled Crested-Flycatcher and Bar-throated Apalis so that I can kick myself? :slap:
