Jee after a mad drive down to george this weekend with Yolande I managed to add 6 lifers to my List, putting me up to 520!

Managed to get the big one in the form of hudsonian Godwit!

the other lifers were:
Agulhas long billed Lark, (Vleesbaai)
Large billed Lark, (Vleesbaai)
Cape Spurfowl, (Vleesbaai)
Greater Sand Plover, (Cape St. Francios)
Bar tailed Godwit, (Cape St Francios)


I think I can still get 2 more from my photo's but I'll need to first check and make sure.
