Red-knobbed Coots breeding at Khartoum Sewage pools

Back in November Marwa and I had the first confirmed records of Red-knobbed Coots in Sudan. We also saw them on subsequent visits and wondered whether they might be breeding birds as they were in full breeding plumage. Today I made a brief evening visit with Stephen, and we were lucky enough to find a pair with two young, thus proving their status as breeding birds in the country.

Viewing conditions were not ideal, but there were lots of ducks on one of the pools, with most seeming to be Gargany and Shoveler, though other species may well have been present.
