Media notes

Brazza's Martin in flight. The Brazza's Martin is a little known hirundine, seen by very few birders and photographed only on a couple of occasions before, and never in flight (?). This species is data-deficient, uncommon and local with its distribution range probably mainly in the virtually inaccessible DRC. Its voice is said to be unknown. But we heard its call! I was lucky to get a few shots just as the sun was setting. Welcome to see more Angolan bird photos at www.larsfoto.se. Elevation: 1100 m. Date added to IBC: November 2, 2016.
