What a delightful place Batty. More extreme birding though as I unsuccessfully tried life as a wader. Those shoes are getting used to it!

So, BB, this time, whose Landy did you get into afterwards with them muddy booties? :twisted:

Well done on those lifers, my friend. :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

WTM and myself contemplated doing the trip but when he reminded me of the costs this undertaking would entail, I suddenly came out of the mental funk the twitch invoked...

My own Joh :wall:

We took friends who are quite new to birding and had not been to an estuary before, so they picked up quite a few lifers there and on the way.

But the round trip cost R800 in fuel. Still expensive.
