caught in the bush..
I have to admit, I am not a birder, so I cannot identify this bird I saw walking in the undergrowth just off the road in the Oribi Gorge region... it was only when I downloaded the photo that I saw the bright orange throat and area around the eye..

Its a gorgeous bird and not one I've seen before, so can't help you with the ID, Andrew. But I do love the image!

Hiya Patrick, thanks...

I believe this bird is a Red Necked Francolin...

I think you're right Andrew, I saw one of these in the Pilanusberg reserve.
