Day 2 was spent in the Kruger - around the Pretoriuskop and Skukuza Camps. Some highlights: Golden-breasted Bunting, European and White-fronted Bee-eater, African Harrier-Hawk, White-browed Scrub-Robin and Southern Tchagra. The Emerald Spotted Wood-Dove was stunning and the following Kingfishers were also photographed (Brown-hooded, Giant, Pied and Striped).

Hi Mark!

Lovely sightings you had!

I just want to differ with you on the Tchagra id. I'd go with Brown-crowned Tchagra.

Thank you so much for the correction. I see in terms of distribution it could not be the Southern - I made a too hasty decision! I have amended my LifeList - it is still a Lifer for me. Most appreciated!
