Sooty Falcon Falco concolor (175)
IUCN Red list status: Near threatened
Experiences with species

One of these falcons pitched up way south of their normal range, in Plettenberg Bay. People had been getting great photos, I just hoped for a sighting - we got the sighting, through a scope - the photo is a blur, but at least we saw it. I spotted another in 2015 in Mozambique and this one actually sat still for me to get a reasonable shot.
