Ortolan Bunting in Namibia – a first for southern Africa!

November 16, 2013

Claire Spottiswoode has just sent a photograph of an Ortolan Bunting, photographed a few days ago in Namibia by Paul Donald.

Paul has just arrived back in email contact in Luderitz and reports that the bunting, which would represent a first for southern Africa, was briefly on the verandah at NamibRand Family Hideout (which is here: 25°17’14.12″S 16° 4’5.45″E) on 13 Nov 2013 at about 9.20 am. It only stayed for about 10 seconds and he could not relocate it.

He can’t download the photo off his camera while travelling so this is a screen grab off the camera, sent from his iPod. Good luck if any of you are considering try to relocate it!

all the best
