Woodland Kingfisher. I first thought it was the more common Brownhooded Kingfisher but when checking the colour on the lower mandible I realised that it was black instead of orange. The black markings on the wing dont join up on the back as per the other Kingfishers (Mangrove Kingfisher excluded)

Baby Hadeda in nest. Unluckily not a very clear shot as the bird kept ducking out of sight as soon as I moved any closer.
