We saw one at Shingwedzi causeway, but no photo, as Michel hadn't fixed my camera at that stage!! :cry:

:wall: Had to wait 40 minutes+ to get a shot of this Three-banded Plover chick and it finally paid off...

Hello, I have this LBJ that need identifying :)
I saw this bird last week at the bridge across the Letaba river, close to Letaba restcamp. It was busy on the ground, next to some water. It didn't appear to be part of any group.
