Description:

Rarities and Interesting Observations.

Summary / Notes:

On 3.10.2009 Richard Niddrie and Eckart Demasius saw a flock of about 15 sharp-tailed starlings in woodland near Shamvura Camp before finding three Souza's shrikes and an African hobby while birding with Mark Paxton. On 7.9.2009 they saw a pallid harrier and a western banded snake eagle near Kalizo Lodge east of Katima Mulilo and on 9.10.2009 they found a pair of white-backed night-herons roosting in a tree overhanging the water while on a boat trip out of Mahangu Safari Lodge on the Okavango River near Bagani. These are all uncommon species much coveted by twitchers for their life lists. On 20.10.2009 Peter and Marilyn Bridgeford saw a single white stork circling over Walvis Bay. It seems that there are very few records of this species at the coast. The Bird Club outing to Farm Ongos just north of Windhoek on 25.10.2009 produced a sighting of a pair of African black duck. Not exactly a rarity but by no means a common species in central Namibia. Pelican Methuselah (see Lanioturdus 42-3) was sighted again on 31.10.2009 at the small craft jetty at Walvis Bay. This bird is now nearly 37 years old!
