Working hard, @Dave Williams ?! Isn't it funny how we forget to include the "usual suspects" which we encounter daily. Great photos of Greater Scaup.

That's exactly what Claire said a couple of minutes ago when I said I'm going to continue working on my Namibia shots. It's work to me and the only distraction is the sound of Claire pushing the vacuum cleaner around the house:rolleyes:

I hadn't got around to sorting them by species 8 months later as the task was too great when you take too many shots.I might find a nugget or two in amongst them!

I totally agree. My list is still missing Common Kestrel amongst others. It certainly encourages more outings.

Indeed! Dave's comments (and nice weather) makes me go out each afternoon, for about 60-90 minutes. Each day one new species ... and some were lifers!

Not sure about this one from Etosha, my guess is a Chat Flycatcher. Opinions welcome!

@Galana @lmSA84 Thanks both, the "Rattler"...I like that name... was again Etosha, somewhere around Halali towards the Pan I think.

 

 

So that puts me on 315 and my best day in months!!!!

You see, @Dave Williams, not that you have captured less birds in Namibia, you were only a bit too sloppy the first time around checking your portfolio B).

And all new entries are excellent quality photos!! Congratulations.
