    Maybe a female Stonechat? What do you think?

    This bird was moving in a wetland marsh (rushes) on the edge of a lagoon near Xigera Camp, central Okavango Delta, Botswana. I took the photo on 27 November 2011. It looks like a female Stonechat to me, but I'm new to the birds of that area, so could use the help of a more experienced birder.
