At this stage I should also update my own list... :D

There are still some IDs to be sorted out from the armchair, but the following are new additions to my life list; all from the Hazyview and Kruger NP; May 19 - 31:

Common (Kurrichane) Buttonquail
Cutthroat Finch
Dark-capped Yellow Warbler
Freckled Nightjar
Purple Indigobird
Red-capped Robin-chat
Yellow-rumped Tinkerbird
Plain-backed Pipit (edit: added armchair tick after Isinkwe and Wildtuinman assisted with the ID!)

This takes me to 469
