Well done on the 600 Matt - great bird to get there as well :thumbs_up: :clap: :clap:

I have had quite a productive month with 7 new additions so now up to 523 :D :D

White Breasted Cuckoo-Shrike
Klaas Cuckoo
Green Sandpiper
Cape Parrot
Lemon Dove
Brown Scrub-Robin
African Wood Owl

Considering I have now reached my 2013 target of 520 I better re-adjust to 530 - with a short trip to KZN still planned I suppose this is still reachable :pray:

I'm in low gear! :lol:

I've been able to add Damara tern to my list, taking me up to 658. I can only hope for some weird and wonderful vagrants to start pitching otherwise I'll have to get my passport in order!

I haven't posted on the forum for ages but have been birding quite a lot. Had a very nice time last weekend with Frank at Pafuri. His knowledge on the area is amazing. Anyway my total is at 633 at the moment.

I thought it was meant to get tougher to get lifers once you get over 600? I got 3 this morning all within an hour of my house. Garden Warbler at Bishop Park in Centurion, then Eurasian Honey Buzzard and Ayre's Hawk-Eagle in Pretoria, so I'm up to 603
