58.) Great Spotted Woodpecker (Dendrocopos major) / Buntspecht - my favourite catch of the day.      

Ok I´m in as well for this year. I suspect this thread will be pretty dormant until I finally get back to Africa in a few months but let´s see what I can find until then here in Europe.   1) Blue Ti

370/EA41.) White-Spotted Flufftail (Sarothrura pulchra) / Perlenralle

 

Kakamega, 30/11. Very bad photo but still a very satisfying one for me, tried more than 30 minutes for this bird. They live in dark, overgrown creek beds are tiny and are "extremely difficult to see" according to "Birds of East Africa".

That does seem a reasonable point...

An impressive Francolin collection @@michael-ibk ! Love your flight shot of the Grey Crowned Crane and getting a shot of the elusive Flufftail must have been very rewarding. Close to hitting the 400 mark!
