Sanderlings, Grey-headed Gulls and LBBG'S

Blue-spotted Wood Dove

African Darter

Not a rare bird but one that probably doesn't get looked at that much, especially once it's ticked off. We watched this one trying to dig crabs out of their burrows with it's very long legs and thighs. It would often start by putting it's head and neck deep inside the burrows before sticking it's feet in. It would then sometimes get really excited, flapping it's wings, jumping in the air and ruffling up. An everyday bird but a really special encounter.
