Klipriver south of Kibler park, some distance way out
it's normal habitat.
It cannot be made more or less for that matter but it can be altered to suit.- The universe.

I doubt that I'll add anything else before month end, so 653 is the new number for me. African crake, sand martin and green malkoha are the three new ones. :dance: :dance: :dance:
676 Latest lifers: Short-clawed lark, Caspian plover, Western marsh harrier, Rüppell's vulture, Spotted crake

Oh Wow, very very impressive totals and well done to all!

My new total 230 after our trip in March to Tsendze where I could see all the summer visitors. Previous total was 195 I think. New target 250!

It's almost a year (started mid April 2012) after I started birding and a whole new perspective to nature has opened up for me.

Two friends had booked the pelagic Joh, but at the last moment one couldn't go, so who am I to refuse a friend. :roll:

I was also hoping for Pintado & giant petrels, but the speckie will more than do! It was floating close enough to the boat that even I could clearly see the specs with the naked eye.
