Alicia, I got your message via the grape vine! No problem. I'll add your score in at 124. Don't worry about the recentness of you list! Enjoy it while you can. Lifers are still fantastic at that stage! I update the list at the end of each month.

Don't speak to me about computers Roan the hotel server crashed with no backup - there goes my lists for the garden (over 130 birds including osprey) anf four nearby reserves along with statum - dates seen etc - I could cry we are talking six years of sightings here. To make it worse only a few days before I was saying that I needed to copy the info to my new computer. The geniuses are trying to retrieve our info but after four days I am begining to loose hope.

As I always say give me a landcruiser, a boat, a rifle, fishing rods, paper and pens and keep the rest of the modern world

My list is on 153. I managed to add Long crested eagle, Greycrowned crane and African pied wagtail during a trip to the Wild coast..., even though I didn't really have time for birding.
New goal for 2012 still 200 birds. :thumbs_up:

I'm up to 546 after a trip to Magoebaskloof and Kruger. Didn't add anything in Kruger, but around Magoebaskloof I got Drakensberg Prinia, Gurney's Sugarbird, Short-clawed Lark and Temminck's Courser in the grasslands around Kurisa Moya, and in Woodbush Forest I added Blue-mantled Crested Flycatcher, White-starred Robin, Yellow-streaked Greenbul, Black-fronted Bushshrike, Yellow-throated Woodland Warbler, and got Bat Hawk at New Agatha
