I'll probably have another go later, because I still couldn't find some of the most common species...

The first two from Kruger NP are 'See inside', so disqualified ;)

The rest are good; I can't see the Little Black Cormorant, though? All I can find there is a flying egret (probably Eastern Cattle Egret - can you confirm?) :t:
Regrettably, they're all 'See inside', not Street View, so disqualified :-C

Check the logo at the top left corner of the footage!

We can surely include them on a separate Cat ‘D’ list? - After all, they are good ‘captures’ and it would be a shame to deter such diligence ;)

- I think there’s Little Black Cormorant in the Ibis link sitting on top of the statues

Not a swift at all, but even better! Long tail, falcon wings, underwing nearly white except for black tips: Lesser Kestrel, male :t::t::t:

Footage is July 2017

I’m not sure I’d call on that image lol but wt ‘eck ;) You can see more on your monitor I think than I can on my tablet -
