Hi All

I had a <!-- s:bouncy: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/bouncy.gif" alt=":bouncy:" title="Enthusiastic" /><!-- s:bouncy: --> moment yesterday, when I noticed a Lesser Honeyguide fly into our oak tree, scratch around, and then poke its head into all the nesting logs for a good look, and then fly off.

That makes it only my second sighting of this species ever!
It really is a fleeting energetic little bird, with few diagnostic features. I can imagine a beginners nightmare to pin an ID on it. The white outer tail feathers being the only good clue.

We now have both greater and lesser on our garden list.
