I've added 21 lifers during my KNP trip in June 21, bring my Kruger total to 233. Some new birds (that I can remember without referring back to my list :lol: ) were black-throated wattle-eye, pink-thoated twinspot, yellow-breasted apalis, lemon-breasted canary, green-backed camaroptera, ashy flycatcher, yellow-bellied greenbul, crowned hornbill, grey-headed parrot, purple turaco, collared sunbird, rattling cisticola, lizard buzzard, and southern black tit.. :D

Sjo! Pink-throated Twinspot is a particular good one. Where did you find it?

Believe it or not, about 5 or 6 kms north of Babalala picnic spot. (And I'm sure of the ID - although no pics to prove it :( )

The Twinspot is very impressive . I presume the Wattle-eye was at Pafuri . Where did you see the Grey Headed parrots ?
