According to my Collins Bird Guide, these birds are "rare away from few breeding areas in S and E England" - so this looks like an unusual sighting for where you are.
Is the Chobe River in this country ?

I looked it up on Google and came across some African locations, but clicking on the location link above shows a site in northern England.
Chobe River where the photograph was taken forms the border between Botswana & Namibia. The link should show this now, not sure how I managed to get it to show Teesside.
Thanks for the clarification Teesider. It still looks like a Stone-Curlew or a near relative, but I'm not familiar with the birds of that area, so hopefully someone else can clarify what they are.

This one has more comments - but these relate to it being on the UK site at the time the two sites were separate.
Now that the sites are joined this is a duplicate.
