We visited Zonderwater prison grounds near Cullinan yesterday. Thanks to an amazing bird behaviour expert, I was able to add 2 more 2 my list -

African Grass Owl
Red-chested Flufftail (I had 4 brief glimpses of at least 4 individual birds - 3 females and a male). I can confirm I am rather excited about this one!


Total - 446
