FRANKLIN’S GULL – a single bird has just been found and photographed in the Tern roost on Pan P2 at Strandfontein Sewage Works. This is not the same individual that was seen there a few days ago which was in full breeding plumage, this is a bird in non-breeding (winter) plumage – reported by Garret Skead.

LESSER BLACK-BACKED GULL – a single bird has just been found and photographed at Leeupan near Leandra (Mpumalanga) at -26.553, 28.998. I’m told that where it was seen from is private property, but I assume that there are areas around the pan that are accessible to the public as birders have seen this species at this site before – reported by Duncan McKenzie.

 

Kind regards

Trevor
