NotesSITE 2 --- A very large colony of ploceus Katangae mixed with about 20% of Melanocephalus. Nests were build in tall and short grass,Papyrus, small Ambatch-like thorny bushes and reeds.Nests were build mostly above water but I could see far behind the tall grass more nests, not sure if there was still water. I counted over 30 visible nests but many more were hidden behind the Tall Grass.
