Thanks !

That was at Macaneta Wetlands, about 30 kms north of Maputo. Famous place where some ethousiastic birders come, even from South Africa, to see some rarities or vagrants.

At Cederberg Wilderness Area (Western Cape), I was lucky to see several Malachite Sunbirds for the first time ! They are magnificent birds.
