Well, there you have it Johan right from the horse's mouth... :tongue:

I really don't mind either way, so I can be added or left off... I'll leave it up to others to decide... :whistle:


This could be fun. Closest wins a pair of bins...(from Trevor)

I guess 820.

Trevor actually has the second highest Southern African list after Ian Sinclair. Legendary comes to mind. I will leave it up to him and the keeper of the list (Ferdelance)to mention the total. It would be nice to be able to add to our list.

The SA list is kept up to date here: http://www.zestforbirds.co.za/listing.html
It is incredible how many birders have lists of more than 800.

You certainly weren't treading on my toes... so no need to apologise at all. :lol:

Nice to see you popping in Trevor.

I am not complaining at all. Finding those 150 have given me a great deal of pleasure - and a bit of grief with those I dipped on, but I am just highlighting the dedication and ability of my good mates.

Why are you being so kind, BB?

:twisted:

Is there a trip in the pipeline to the Big Smog?

I was wondering the same thing. The man from Cape Town is awfully nice to us! :lol: :lol:

Thanks BB, I think I was a bit more dedicated in the last few years, but I think the main thing that boosted my list was the fact that I birded complete new places I haven't been to in South Africa. That really helped! :thumbs_up:

Well, if people want to add me to the list here, they are welcome to do so... my total is not really a secret and is easily viewable at http://www.zestforbirds.co.za ... I will leave it up to the list administrators to decide... :hmz:

I don't really have any end of the year targets... if I did, it would probably be just to at least remain the same and not to go backwards because of any lumps... :lol:

There are now still 2 resident species in Southern Africa that I have to go and get - Angola Cave Chat and Green Tinkerbird, both recently discovered populations in the subregion that were not known about up until not too long ago. So, maybe, some plans will be put into motion to go and get these 2 for my Southern African list sometime this year - we'll just have to wait and see... :w:

I can't speak for anyone else, but I think it would be an honour to have you on the list Trevor.
