We spent this last weekend in Sirheni and I saw a Black-faced Waxbill. I was very surprised, but according to Roberts Multi Media, it is in (or just outside) the bird's normal distribution.

My total now is 321.

My list for Kruger at this stage stands at 327. Maybe I can add one or two during the 2012 Birding Weekend at Mopanie

This trip supplied 116, but my previous trips will definitely add more, so we go do some homework...
