Wingman it's a male White-bellied Bustard. Very nice sighting!

Agreed.

Very special to get photo's of them Wingwam, they are quite uncommon and very shy, so not easy to get photo's of them..

Well done :wink:

Thanks for the confirmation, it was a lucky shot I was going mountain biking and left the big camera at home but always carry a panasonic point and shoot in the cubby hole when these birds walked across the road in front of us 2 adults and a youngster.
