I asked them all to stay there and make themselves nice and visible for you, Val! :wink: But I'm sure there will be many more birdies back in December! :dance:

Just realised we've never ticked off the Cape Robin-Chat (Gewone Janfrederik) and Indian Myna (Indiese Spreeu) - and I see them in my garden probably EVERYDAY! And re-counted our list - with 1 more slipping in somewhere... So up our total to 337 please... :redface: :slap: :D

A 5 day trip to Secunda this last week got me to my goal (of 350) and a few more so I am now 355, thanks to among others a Whiskered Tern and two Marsh Owls - both on the fringes of Secunda. No need for far travel which was great.

My target is now 360 but with no upcoming trips and being Cape bound for the next months I reckon it will take a long while to get there.
