Mandingoa nitidula   Green Twinspot  Groenkolpensie
Green Twinspot male
Lapalala Wilderness, Jul 2023

Status uncertain. There are currently two records, (photographically confirmed) - see alongside - a male mist netted in Lapalala in Jul 2023 and a female which joined a group of Black-faced and Violet-eared Waxbills drinking at a cattle trough in Jun 2018. How does one explain the presence of these forest-loving birds in the Waterberg?
