Spotted in Namibia
Haha, yes indeed i speak dutch, when we were in Namibia we understood everything or almost, the names are sometimes very funny for us, i remember for instance the kameelperd ;-) baie goed !!
I suspect that you can understand a bit Dutch. In Afrikaans, the common name for this bird in Namaqualand where things are named and described fairly literally, is "Bottergat". Translated to English will mean something like "Butterarse".
Thanks Willie for the positive reactions :)
beautiful photo of your spotting, Isabella
