Black-winged Pratincole

Glareola nordmanni

Slightly darker and longer legged than its collared cousin this near-threatened, summer migrant is often seen in huge flocks in grasslands, fallow lands and at the edges of wetlands.

My two most reliable spotsĀ  for this species (near Gauteng) are the Kgomo Kgomo floodplain and Mkhombo Dam Nature Reserve.
