Best in Africa, was trip to South Africa two years ago - got 9, last December in Tanzania managed 8, in Uganda only managed a poor 5.

Best ever worldwide was three weeks in Papua New Guinea (last May) managed 11 including two Paradise Kingfishers.

I did not count but in the Amazon basin, I attracted the Amazon Kingfisher so often that my travelmates kidded me of having an admirer.
