Western Reef Heron
Egretta gularis


Reported from Rondebult Bird Sanctuary near Germiston in Gauteng. This represents the second record of this species for Southern Africa and the first record of this subspecies, E.g.schistacea (Birds of Africa = asha), the race normally restricted to the east coast of Africa much further north of our subregion.
