That would appear to be it for KTP this time, unless I unearth any more whilst doing my TR. Still no groundscraper thrush....

Are you going to count this? I should.

Congratulations on your persistence. You got the Red leg at last. and the Goldcrest.

Wow, you have really raced forward since I last looked. Great additions and the magic 400 is now very close.

The Lanner with the Finch is fantastic - didn´t even notice the prey at first.

Yep, very envious of seeing the Secretary Bird, along with Ground Hornbill they are my top 2 for Kruger..if I get there this time!!

 

I haven't been watching numbers like some are but you are way ahead of me now. 500 soon!

Sorry to be the bearer of bad tidings, but for secretary birds you are going to the wrong park. Kgalagadi is the place for them. But you have a good chance at ground Hornbill.
