Hello from Cape Town,

So far, we have received 4 suggestions for the latest mystery bird on our
website at

Northern Wheatear - Oenanthe oenanthe
Capped Wheatear - Oenanthe pileata
Isabelline Wheatear - Oenanthe isabellina
Sickle-winged Chat - Cercomela sinuata

So, please go and have a look and let us know what you think it is and what
your reasons are for saying so.

As an aside, we have also just added photos to the "recent rarity photos"
page of Southern Africa's 3rd Balearic Shearwater (not great photos) and 5th
White-faced Storm Petrel seen recently if anyone is interested.

Looking forward to hearing from you.

Kind Regards
Trevor Hardaker and John Graham
Cape Town, South Africa
