At first glance I'd say Long-billed Crombec.
Am open for correction.

Can you help me here, please?

I saw this one in November 2007 close to Satara. Unfortunately I have only this one photo.

Thanks for the responses guys, but I don't think this is a Crombec because it is much larger than a Crombec and the lower parts are lightly coloured. The bill is too heavy as well.

It looks like a juvenile of some sorts to me.

Looks like Long-billed Crombec to me as well. Here is one I took in Mapungubwe few years back for comparison.

I'm thinking that this one is a longbilled crombec? Seen at Mapungubwe in April 2012.
