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.

I'm staring at a nest 12 meters up a tree. The scary part is that I am at eye-level with it … not very comforting unless you're used to being at a height equivalent to that of a four-storey building. Sweat is running into my eyes as I peer through the viewfinder. It's hot outside, but that's nothing compared to the heat trapped within my small hide. Not even the honey bee that has just crawled down my sock into my right boot can distract me.
