As requested by JvR, my Southern African total can be bumped up a bit to 800 exact, finally got Eurasian Marsh-Harrier at Wakkerstroom a few months back after two previous 'possible' sightings of this species where I never got a good enough look to be sure! Now who can organise me a Pennant-wing!!

Alicia, I got your message via the grape vine! No problem. I'll add your score in at 124. Don't worry about the recentness of you list! Enjoy it while you can. Lifers are still fantastic at that stage! I update the list at the end of each month.
