Sadly this bird was quite distant and obscured by branches. We didn't see it again.

Beautiful additions, especially like the Hoopoe. I think your Tawny is a juv. Bateleur, no?

I am suspicious that your Walberg's is actually a tawny....

What, @Soukous , you have not invited the Crested Barbet to the breakfast?! It looks quite angry to me ... :D.

yes, well spotted @michael-ibk you are right.

I deliberately put in a few mistakes to check that you are paying attention. It is indeed a juvenile Bateleur

You may be right. I am trying to match up my photos with the date I logged the sighting and do stuff up from time to time.

All I can say on that one is that our guide assured us it was a Wahlberg's.
