I had a broken leg, and had to bum a lift there...cause I couldnt drive :D Got there at about 12, and It was roosting amongst the Grey Head Gulls...Had to leave at 3, and it was still there, but swimming around feeding....Not the most interesting bird to watch...But definately a once off oppertunity...Sorry to hear you missed it.

PEOPLE, PEOPLE, PEOPLE.

Go to areas bordering Mozambique and near Swaziland in KZN...

...you will find the following of which the Narina Trogon was the only one snubbing me:

Narina Trogon;
Crested Guineafowl;
African Broadbill;
Pel's fishing Owl;
White-breasted Cuckooshrike
AND...
...Neergard's Sunbird.
