19 looks like a cloud cisticola
20 some kind of weaver!

 

19 is not a Cisticola (Seed eater Bill not insect eater.) Most likely Common Quelea.

20. Cape Weaver. (immature)

 

2. Certainly a lark and not a chat. (bill shape and size again.) Very dark and contrasty so best guess is Large billed Lark.

II. Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park, South Africa / 01.Feb - 12.Feb 2016

 

We have returned to KTP to see more of the big cats, yet birds of prey were in good numbers also this year, plus quite many smaller ones!
