Hi Albert,

Thanks a million for the update. Would you kindly remove the African Golden Oriole from my list? I misunderstood Johan on our birding day! :redface:

That brings my total to 306. Thank you! :gflower:

5 more birdies for me after our trip to Pilansberg on the long weekend...I was very chuffed to be able to identify a Greater Kestrel which had just made a kill and was feeding 2 juveniles. The other highlight for me was the Yellow-throated Sandgrouse

Having dipped on this lovely birdie on my jaunt with Joh, I bagged it in the Eastern Cape while bunking the Assembly one morning.

White starred robin #796 Thanks a ton Dave & Melanie. :thumbs_up:
Whatever (according to BB): "You are correct but I don't want to admit it".

In a world of grey, be RED

My own list goes up one to 475 as we ticked House Crow from the international departure lounge at Cape Town International Airport.....

Target now 690 for 2017 with a trip to Punda in November :D

Please update my list to 654 with a Bar-tailed Godwit.

Finally a Godwit and no DippingTwitwits as in the past
