The first one was a Spur-winged Lapwing (Plover) which I'd seen on the airstrip. The lapwing I saw recently turned out to be a Long-toed Lapwing (Plover). Only thing is I didn't have a full-length photo of this bird so didn't do a post on it.
Last weekend, while I was focusing on an African Jacana tip-toeing across the lilies in a small pond near the road, Grant pointed to a bird nearby. It was the Long-toed Lapwing. I swung the camera onto this bird who obliged me, not once, but twice by lifting its leg in the air!
