I love waders, I guess as a result of growing up in Norfolk. One of the great things about Namibia is the three common courser species found at Etosha.

Temminck's courser - this was a bogey bird for me for a long time but surrenders every year these days.

Burchell's courser - scarce this year (after early rains), we saw just three.

Double-banded courser - a superb bird.

One day I will get a bronze-winged...


  1. welcome back, Phil..! I might pop over for the Steppe Eagle if it's still around in a week or two.. fancy it? T
