Fantastic collection! I have to ask @Treepol - was this all one trip through July and August? I’m particularly keen to hear how Tembe and Giant’s Castle were?

What an epic journey that was! No stone left unturned, based on vast list of places visited. The bird list will be equally impressive, looking forward to meet some old friends and to see some new ones.

Great collection but the one I found most interesting was European Goldfinch in Tasmania. Is this a 'usual" sight or a rarity? I see they are an introduced species.

Welcome back. A great collection and from only reaching the "C" in the list I can anticipate more beauties to come.

Was this one trip or an amalgamation of your wanderings?

Very observant Fred, I missed that!! Looks like a big score up and coming! Bring it on.

@lmSA84and @Galanathis was one trip overland from Dar to Livingstone, then a flight to JNB and onto Marrick Farm and then back to JNB, a flight to Richards Bay and then overland to Cape Town with just one flight from Durban to George. A TR will be along as soon as the Big Year is done! Tembe was a very pleasant surprise for diversity and number of sightings of wildlife, highly recommended. Giant's Castle was good, with better weather it would be great!

 

@Dave Williams European Goldfinches are quite common here. I sometimes see them in a garden up the street when I am walking the dog, and there were 2 sightings at Strahan in October. I like them because they are so colourful.

 

@xelasstay tuned!
