Crab Plovers at Witsand, Barra

 

Great Knots found on the Mozambique Coast

While leading a birding trip to Southern Mozambique, Maans Booysen located and photographed no less than 3 Great Knots (Calidris tenuirostris) at the Barra Peninsula, near Inhambane, Southern Mozambique. There is one previous record of Great Knot for the Barra Peninsula by Faansie Peacock in December 2004, but given these birds propensity to return to the same area, it is conceivable that one might be the same bird that Faansie recorded in 2004.

A first sighting is a rare pleasure, something that lingers in the minds of most birders. Today is no exception. What makes this particular sighting so indelible is my awareness that very few people have seen this species. But here, literally in hand, are 12 Olive-headed Weavers - an intriguing and rarely seen species.

The collection forms a part of the larger faunal collection of the British Natural History Museum.
