Myrmecocichla monticola   Mountain Wheatear  Bergwagter

 

A vagrant? There are four records of this highveld/karoo species from the high-lying open country in and around Marakele National Park from 2011 to 2017 during the months of Apr and Sep-Nov. It would be useful to establish whether it is a vagrant or, like the Buff-streaked Chat, there is an outlying resident population of the species here.
