Who is this?

Unread post by UKPete »

From UK so all I see in my back garden are sparrows, blackbirds and robins!
Just back from Kruger and part of the fun is identifying the birds and animals I have photographed - I have a guide to birds with photos in, but if the picture in the book isn't the same angle as the subject it can get tricky.
This fellow was by the Matambeni Hide, Letaba on 28 November - anyone help with who he/she is?

OK, it looks like both the tawnyflanked and the blackchested prinia occur in Mapungubwe, but yours looks to me like the tawnyflanked. Lucky you to have been at Leokwe, one of my favourites camps! :mrgreen:
