Does any one know of a water hole in Kgalagadi where Burchells Sandgrouse are regularly seen?

Kannagaus?

Thanks for the help.

Burchell's sandgrouse - female (I think) taking off. I called it the "Muddy take off"). Also taken at Kannaguass earlier this year.

Not easy to catch these birds in fligth - I think I got lucky on this one. Maybe got stuck in the mudd :lol:
