The highlight, if you can call it that, was a new species for me, Pennant-winged Nightjar. Unfortunately it was 'roadkill' so I cannot tick it. From the photos, it seems to be an young male starting its moult into breeding plumage, though the spectacular elongated 9th primaries have not yet replaced the juvenile feathers. I suspect that the species is quite common and will look out for it when I return.

Sun LarkThen the rain came on, perhaps the heaviest yet this year, and I retreated to Juba. In three weeks' time the weavers and bishops will no doubt be developing breeding plumage, whilst the already wet bushland will be becoming hard to walk through as the grass grows high and dense.
