One from the archives this week, as I haven’t been able to get any photos this weekend.
Last year I saw this Water Thick-knee at Sunset Dam in Kruger National Park. You’ll find Water Thick-knees in Africa in wetlands and riverine areas. Although they are mainly nocturnal, you will see them during the day too, usually on river and lake edges. The male and female have the same plumage and colours.
As you can see they have huge eyes. This one particularly looks as if the whole world has just turned against him.
