Let me know if you find the ducks or the wagtails. There was a hungry looking African Harrier-Hawk prowling along the water edge so let's hope it doesn't have the wagtails for breakfast.

There are some serious good lists here for Kruger. I always thought that the mid 300's is a super total. Going into the 400's is just hardcore! :thumbs_up:

Hi bird troopers,

Under promting from Wildtuinman (whose real pseudonym should be FrogMan because of his fondness for amphibians :wink: ) I hereby submit my Kruger total - 406 - not quite as hardcore as colleagues or ex-colleagues and their offspring living in/or used to live in the park like John Davies, Don English, Ian Whyte or Rich Sowry, but not too bad, and I'm not as mobile as most. Still need a couple of fairly regular KNP birds. Unfortunately most of my current project work is in other parks, so not in Kruger with the old regularity these days. Have only been there 3 times this year :( (Shame I hear some of you stuck faraway say)

Cheers

Owl

Great to read one of your posts again, Owl. :wink:
Glad to see that the entertainment I gave you guys (to my own detriment) from the Punda pool is still well and truly stuck in your memory. :doh:

Super total that!
