130. Steppe Buzzard. Darling 11th Feb.'Vulpinus' is now considered a subspecies of buteo buteo, so I I don't know if I can still add our 'own' buzzard later on....

Excellent shot of the Rock Martin, and the Starling is very cool as well.

145. Violet-eared Waxbill. Keetmanshoop Feb. Definitely an ebc shot :) I would have loved a better shot, but it kept disappearing in the grass and bushes. As it turned out it was the only one we saw.....

146. African Jacana. Southern Namibia Feb. In the same category as the previous one and, to my surprise, also the only one we saw.
