High flying raptors are always in the ebc domain: distance, against the light, etc. How did you decide is a Cape ?? And, congratulations on reaching #200 !

Congratulations on 200. Well deserved.

Surely the first of your Southern Black Flycatchers is an FT Drongo?

 

I don't feel threatened by your EBCs yet.

@Galana I initially wondered that and after looking online decided against it. Will have plenty of opportunities for them in ktp though
