The wattle-eye was indeed at Pafuri picnic spot, and the grey headed parrots was on the Mahonie loop at Punda Maria.

Jeez, Brenden, but you ARE keen on that Common Cuckoo! I have not been able to process the shots of the cuckoo as yet. I'll hold thumbs for you... :lol:

At least I KNOW what you want it to be... :twisted:

A small group of birders enjoyed a wonderful (long-) weekend being pampered by the Midrand Region HRs at Balule. We had Brenden to guide us on walks and drives around Balule. The various tick counts are still in the auditing process, but the preliminary indications are IMPRESSIVE!

My personal KNP list has been bumped up probably to over 350. I will post the final tally some time soon.

Unfortunately not at an accessible spot for the general KNP tourist, Daan. It was the type of 'benefit' one only enjoys during special events like the Balule Bashes...

I don't know about you, but the Red-Capped Lark was never ticked in the official list for that weekend.
