:wall: Hardly said 5 words to LS & Spots.

Maybe when we eat out we should change seats every half hour.

Thanks p@m, it saw great to see them again, and meet 'new' and 'old' faces.

True, BB - :(

Either doing it your way next time (but always leaving food
and drink behind - now, that should be interesting :twisted: )
or ask the restaurant to set up a square lay out for the tables. :thumbs_up:

Still it was a great night out!
Loved to meet some new faces :yaya: Rookie, Rusty and RichardJ.
And were happy to meet up again with people we already knew - :yaya: p@m & SO and BB & SO!

Thanks so much for organizing this for us all, p@m :gflower:

And thanks for doing the long trek, in some cases, to come and meet Spots and me! :k

BTW, I had my camera with me as well... :redface: :doh:

Must echo the sentiment - Thanks to p@m for arranging.

Lovely to meet Lionspoon and Spots, RichardJ and Rusty.

Maybe a round table next time, but an enjoyable evening anyway!
Glad everybody got home safely.

@ Lionspoon...it was great meeting you and Spots up at Kirstenbosch :D ...I am sorry that the birds didn't really play along though :cry: .... but at least the owl was in residence :thumbs_up:

As promised.... a list of the birds that we saw.....

Spotted Eagle Owl
Malachite Sunbird
Orange-breasted Sunbird
Southern Double-collared Sunbird
Black Saw-wing
Black Sparrowhawk
Jackal Buzzard alongside what I am convinced of (when I look at my extremely “blurd” photo) is an African Harrier Hawk
Pied Crow
Eygptian Goose
Cape Spurfowl
Hadeda Ibis
Red-winged Starling
Cape Canary

We heard the loud-mouthed Karoo Prinia as well as the Sombre Greenbul.

Oh and let’s not forget the dove that we saw high up in a tree outside the restaurant… :wink:

Oh and the big butterfly that I was so excited about is called a “Table Mountain Beauty”

And I had such an amazing sighting of an African Goshawk on the way home !!!
(which you can see here )

I am pleased that you have arrived home safely :thumbs_up: and enjoy looking forward to your next KTP trip...:)

Gee Caracal, with such an impressive list, I think I need to arrange a "meet" with you and Scouter in the garden some time. :whistle:

Went yesterday and saw some interestingly coloured Sunbirds which I will post for ID. Didn't see ANY of the raptors......but then I am so unfit that I was probably watching my feet more than looking up while I slogged and huffed and puffed up the hill to the Protea garden! :lol: :lol:

Anytime Rookie...I keep telling you that !!!!
AND I know a few not so steep paths that can get you up to the proteas and ericas.....
I cannot wait for the aloes to come into flower..much fun to be had with the Sunbirds then. It starts off with "oh look at that gorgeous little sunbird" and ends up with " Why can that flippen @#$^%&*^%$ sunbird not sit still for a decent :cam: :evil: :twisted: ............but loads of fun none the less !!!!

Caracal, thanks so much for the bird list! :k
As I already said elsewhere - it was fantastic meeting you and Scouter at Kirstenbosch!
Thanks so much for making time to guide us around! :gflower:

Rookie, don't be fooled. :twisted: Caracal saw all of those birds - I have to pass on
two or three species. :redface:
