It really pays off to go atlassing wiht experienced atlassers. 3 more lifers - Wailing Cisticola, Cloud Cisticola, Long-billed Pipit.

My total is now 454.

With only Karin Mitton recording any movement in November (now up to 454, with +8 and therefore winner of the red jacket) I am not going to repost the list now, but will update again at the end of December. Hopefully there will be some movement during this month as birders get some holiday time! :thumbs_up:
Latest lifers: House Crow, Grey-backed Cisticola, Ludwig's Bustard, Tractrac Chat, African Reed Warbler, Black-bellied Starling, Plain-backed Pipit, Common Buttonquail, Cutthroat Finch, Freckled Nightjar

I'm planning to do a lot of birding in and around Gauteng when I go on leave next week - I would love to get to 460 by the end of the year!
