Well done ruthp. Now we just need to find three more birders for 200!

The brief appearance of the Eurasian Blackcap before a large bunch of birders in a private garden takes me to 782.

Now if only I can make the time to get to Durbanville....work is interfering seriously with my birding!

Today I happened to find my sighting notes for a 2009 trip to KNP and found that there were 2 birds not marked in my usual book - so now I'm up to 303 :)

Thanks for the updates ruthp and welcome back Sky! (first update since December 2015 according to my list). Now maybe you need to go have a look at the Stiffnecks' Year list for 2017 topic, Sky.... :lol:

I have updated the list, but will wait until end of August before I publish the next update (hoping for some more updates!)

Well done PL & Sky.

A first pelagic trip bags a good number. I presume your Yellow nose was Indian Sky?
