I only lasted two nights of the three due to wind. Wind speeds of 40-60km were reported and I can well believe it! Trying to see the movement of a warbler or crombec is a challenge on it's own, but when every tree, bush and blade of grass is over past 45% it takes some doing. That's not counting feathers being blown in all directions, totally destroying jizz and birds simply staying out of the wind.
However...I really loved the place and will return first chance I get! The campsite was as good as you guys said it would be and I got great results at the picnic spot along the lammerwhatever trail. I recorded 10 lifers in all in two days, moving to 478, I believe.
The hill drive was magnificent, both before the first lookout spot and then out towards the 4x4 routes and I took three hours to travel 90km!
I'm finally starting to enjoy ID-ing LBJs more than the 'lekker' ones and can almost tell a Lark from a Cisticola!
Much obliged to everyone who helped. I had every word you typed on my iPad for days before the trip and tried to learn a few of the calls. (you can imagine what the wind did to those calls!)
PS - Let's not discuss the pics just yet....I was as clumsy as a virgin at a motel and my results were far worse. I'll need to learn how to process RAW, but I'm not expecting much.
