Hey Mel - another great bird and great spotting. Once again I wish to invite you and your spottings to these two African missions: Wildlife of Southern Africa (here for link: https://www.projectnoah.org/missions/140... ) and Birds of sub-Saharan Africa (https://www.projectnoah.org/missions/801...).
Cheers
