Moved up again thanks to Honorary Rangers Wader Bash in WCNP.

Osprey with fish in talons flying low overhead :dance:
Little tern
Cape penduline tit
Grey tit
Red knot

But no matter how hard we looked, none of the bar-tailed godwits would turn into a blacktailed, so now I am on

488

Dickinson's kestrel (Mahonie Loop), Bushveld pipit (Mpongolo wilderness area) and African broadbill at Golwe camp gives me +3 to go to 626

I see I forgot to update my number here. I added Mottled Spinetail, Green Twinspot and African Broadbill in Venda at the beginning of the year and last week Skopsie helped me find a pair of Magpie Mannikins in the fields around Tzaneen. Total is now 697.
