Maybe because of the drought??


Same with my last two trips... our Mission turned out way below par, but Monday's visit was promising with green all over previous bare areas :thumbs_up:

My two additions are both vagrants: Caspian plover and the recent star of Transport Dam, the northern wheatear, taking my tally to 378
716 Latest lifers: Southern hyliota, Spotted creeper, Miombo double-collared sunbird, African golden oriole, Boulder chat, Miombo rock-thrush, Red-faced crombec, Auger buzzard, Eurasian curlew, Common whitethroat

Adansonia - seeing that you have been to Leuupan recently , any sight of pygmy geese this year. They often make an appearance if the water lilies are abundant.
