On a recent visit to Western Namibia with friends, one of my bogey birds was Herero Chat which I had missed twice before.
We called on Spitzkoppe Reserve to look for the bird and were told to try campsite 10 which we did. No luck there and we then spread our wings over the area which I thought would be appropriate habitat and yes there was a bird!
We moved closer and eventually I was close enough to photograph the adult. I soon noticed that it was ferrying food to a small tree behind which I hid. On peering through, a juvenile was sitting within a meter of me on the other side of the tree.
I then just waited for the adult to call and a 'lifer' picture presented itself!
Unfortunately, not all lifers are presented as adult and juvenile in the same frame!
