I finally managed to find the Yellow-throated Sandgrouses in the beginning of May, at Chaneng, near Sun City and Pilanesberg NP.
Didn't manage great shots though, as it was the first time playing around with the camera settings off Auto :redface:

Successfully twitched this one on 10/01.
He was behind a high wall, and did 2 fly-bys but not great sightings. Then a guy with a Landy arrived, parked next to the wall and allowed everyone to climb onto th roof of the landy to get a better view of the bird. Still not great photos, but still happy to have them!
