Mainly black and white, and red eyes, that is Blacksmith lapwing (also known as blacksmith plover,Vanellus armatus, seppähyyppä in Finnish). The name derives from the repeated metallic ‘tink, tink, tink’ alarm call, like a blacksmith’s hammer striking an anvil.
Blacksmith lapwings can be seen from Kenya through central Tanzania to southern and southwestern Africa. This bird was visiting a waterhole in Klalagadi National Park in South Africa.
