  1. Sorry, as you probably suspect, this photo is too difficult to tell much. It's hard to get a sense of the colouration vs. light and even the general shape seems suspect (is it fluffed up?). I'm not hugely familiar with East African birds (though there is considerable overlap with southern Africa where I'm based), but I'm gonna say this one is stuck at passerine sp.

    The people at BirdForum are great with African birds, but be warned, they can seem a bit mean spirited at times.


  2. Hi everyone,

    Walvis Bay, Namibia: Last Week

    I don't have much experience with Palearctic terns, but hopefully someone on this forum can help. I think this bird is an Arctic Tern (Common Tern being the only other viable option) due to the white rump and underwing pattern. They are in range in Walvis Bay, but rare (probably under-reported as Common Terns) so I'd like to get some opinions before posting it to eBird

    many thanks!
