Bronze-winged Coursers

Hi: not sure how much this is of interest but we have had two roosting in deep woodland just outside Pretoriouskop on H 1 1; books we have suggest a good bird in winter in South: was watching a LG Bee-eater when I found them about twenty yards further back: luck only;I have a distant image which I can post when back home.

I have seen them a number of times in the area around Tshokwane.

Got this one with another one just south of Satara last month. The light was very bad, so had to ramp the ISO up quite a bit.
