Experiences with species|
Horus Swifts breed in sand banks and cliffs, hence why they are supposed to be
common at Marievale as they nest in the mine dumps there. I eventually saw some there, having found them in Zimbabwe in February 2008
and then at Leeuwpan near Leandra for my first SA record. They have a noticeably shallower fork in their tail than White-rumped.
