:clap: Congrats Bosnimf! :great: Quite an achievement with few birders ever getting to that milestone. I'm working hard on getting there myself.

I'm on 372 after adding the following this past weekend:

Buffy Pipit
Great White Pelican
Lesser Moorhen
Marsh Warbler
Ovambo Sparrowhawk
Rudd's Apalis

Oops. Make that 374. I forgot about the Flappet Lark near Babalala and Freckled Nightjar on the Klopperfontein road.
