I have come back from the most amazing holiday. I have just been to the Drakensberg, Ndumo Game Reserve, St Lucia and Wakkerstroom. Underneath are some of the nicer birds I saw.

Drakensberg: Bush Blackcap (only 1 metre away from us!), Barratt's Warbler, Mountain Wagtail and White-starred Robin.
Ndumo: Rudd's Apalis, Palmnut Vulture, Narina Trogon, African Broadbill, Southern Brown-throated Weaver, Saddle-billed Stork, Mangrove Kingfisher, Black Coucal and Grey Sunbird.
St Lucia: Black-throated Wattle-eye, Southern Banded Snake-eagle, Livingstone's Turaco, Lesser Jacana, Pygmy Goose, Blue-cheeked Bee-eater and African Emerald Cuckoo.
Wakkerstroom: Rudd's and Botha's Larks, Yellow-breasted Pipit (amazing view), Blue Korhaan, Southern Bald Ibis, Buff-streaked Chat, Sentinal Rock-thrush, Western Marsh-Harrier and Montagu's Harrier.

Also visited Ongoye Forest and somehow managed not to see a Green Barbet. Although I saw Grey Cuckoo-shrike and Eastern Bronze-naped Pigeon.
