    A friend reckons it's a Black, going by the banding on the tail, but I can't find any images that look anything like this...

    I send you a pm with screenshots from Newmans & roberts ios apps on black vs copper. Newmans incl sketch of juvenile black, so I would agree with copper.

    Also have sasol ebirds, but very little info on juveniles.

    Now that I've got a camera I can carry on my walks it's time to start identifying some of Port Nolloths' bird life.

    I think this one is a Ruddy Turnstone but since I'm new to this open to correction

    Definitely a turnstone, going into breeding plumage. When was the pic taken?

    Strange, I would have thought they would have left by now

    Bigal, there's a group of 6 or so I see most days now. I'll keep on eye on them to see how long they hang around. Where would they head to? I assume somewhere warmer than our winters ?

    Also found this guy this afternoon. Either a Whimbrel or Curlew,leaning towards Whimbrel but would appreciate confirmation.

    And while I've got the attention of people who know better than I

    Are the other little fellows White Fronted Plovers or Kentish Plovers? I suspect the former but again would be nice to have confirmation.

    Very interesting and look forward to further input. My immediate thought when looking at it was Black-collared Barbet, although barbets are largely absent from W Cape. It could be an escapee.

    The turnstones breed in the southern parts of the arctic, so that is a ###### distance that they have to travel.

    Your other pic is definitely a Whimbrel, which also should have left .

    Could be wrong, but it looks like an escaped exotic White Java Sparrow.

    No that's a male
    Always state where you saw the bird for future ID
    Really helps

    Another Port Nolloth LBJ.

    Not the best image, resident Malachite sunbird was making a huge fuss the other day.

    Looked out expecting a snake of some type when out popped this little guy.

    Best guess is a Long-Billed Crombec, which until this morning I was blissfully unaware existed
