This is a nocturnal bird, hence the big eye’s! I took this photo out on game drive recently, early morning!

    They are big eyes Frank. Are these considered a game bird ???

    I had spotted thick knee once after a rugby match – bit of ice soon got the swelling down.

    Great shot – never seen one of these before

    Meach I know the feeling! They are not game bird’s Richard they are a plover-like bird, alot bigger than a plover though! They feed on insect’s, crustaceans, mollusscs, grass seeds, and frog’s!
