From South Africa: Yellow Wagtail, Common Buzzard, Natal Spurfowl and Red-eyed Dove

Africam Elephant Plains camera is again up and running and it offered me today two new species: Natal Spurfowl (Pternistis natalensis) and Red-eyed Dove (Streptopelia semitorquata). Naturally there were many birds that I had identified also earlier, like Burchell's Coucals (Centropus burchellii) and many more.

Nkorho Pan webcam instead surprised me with Yellow Wagtail (Motacilla flava), which was calling long time close to microphone. Surprise was also Common Buzzard (Buteo buteo). Both are summer visitors in South Africa.

And below finally a decent photo of Red-billed Oxpecker (Buphagus erythrorhynchus) in the back of Impala Antelope.
