12th of August 2010, north of Nossob camp, between Qubitjie Quap and Kwang, we found 5 adult Burchell's Coursers foraging in an area which looks like a "pan" with short tufts of grass, surrounded by "3thorn" shrubbery. There were also 4 Crowned Lapwings sharing the space.
Co-ordinates 2518.999_2030.587.



We also found 5 Double banded Coursers about 5km north of Upington on the R360, 2824.65_2112.10 (on our way home, 14th August) foraging on the shoulder of the road. Unfortunately they were very skittish, and this is the best photo we managed to get:


Another Double banded Courser was also seen on the N14, 60km west of Olifantshoek, 2812.600_2214.23,also on the grassy verge of the road.
