I have heard that Purple Swamphens are very shy and difficult to see elsewhere in their range. On a birdign trip in Kenya I was vastly amused by keen the Brits were to tick PS. Eventually we saw one and this particular ssp is very differently coloured from the Aus one (much more turquoise), but sounds much the same.
And we only did see one or two!
