Hi

I'm happy to anounce that I have finally nailed one of my bogey birds... Black winged lapwing. There are a few groups of them sitting in the short cut grass at the far end of the runway at George airport. You can fly in and out of George in 3.5 hrs from JHB to see this one <!-- s:lol: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_lol.gif" alt=":lol:" title="Laughing" /><!-- s:lol: -->

If you are in the Plett area, there is a tree in full fruit which is attracting loads of black bellied starlings and others, at the entrance of wild waves at Pisang river valley.

And now for a Knysna warbler!

Regards,
Mossie

I'm afraid, no pictures :( I would have had to climb over a frail old lady and a 120kg man to get to it whilst fighting off irate cabin attendants whilst taxiing.

Now that I've seen one, I will probably see them every week <!-- s:lol: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_lol.gif" alt=":lol:" title="Laughing" /><!-- s:lol: -->

I'm not sure how to get permission to run around the runway at George airport :rolleyes: ... too scared of being arrested for being a El Quaida operative trying to shoot flying things with a Canon <!-- s:shock: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_eek.gif" alt=":shock:" title="Shocked" /><!-- s:shock: -->
