Not the best photo ever, wish I had my photographer there with me :lol: , but nevertheless I got the shot. Also taken in Grootbrakrivier garden.

Thank you for all the lovely comments Naomi. :D

It sounds like you definitely need to visit the Garden Route area soon. I am busy writing a birding trip advisor for the town of Grootbrak river with tips of where to find most of the specials in the area. I will send you the link once I am finished with it. Hopefully it will make you decide on paying the area a visit and raking in the lifers. :mrgreen:
