Description:

Rarity sightings and interesting observations.

Summary / Notes:

On 19/01/2009 Hartmut Kolb spotted a colour ringed adult greater flamingo at Walvis Bay with a black ring on the left leg and a metal ring on the right. Enquiries revealed that this bird had been ringed in Botswana where black rings are used to identify the country in which the bird was ringed. Further to the rarities seen at Walvis Bay during the summer wetland count which were reported in Lanioturdus 42-1, the summer count also turned up a red-necked phalarope at Cape Cross and a pectoral sandpiper was recorded at the Walvis Bay sewerage works. Three more red-necked phalaropes were counted at the Mile 4 Salt works together with two American golden plovers and an elegant tern. An elegant tern was seen here at the salt works in February 2007 and later that month at Wlotskasbaken. It is thought to be the same bird that was recorded in February 2006 at the Strandfontein sewerage works on the Cape Peninsula and this is most probably the same bird again. The Strandfontein record was a first for southern Africa.
