I just returned from a Collared Flycatcher sighting in Randburg.

Malcolm Wilson confirms that the COLLARED FLYCATCHER is still present in his garden in Randburg this morning (05h25).

Good luck if you are planning on chasing it!

Kind regards
Trevor

Malcolm Wilson has just photographed a male COLLARED FLYCATCHER in his garden in Randburg! It's still there at the moment (17h30), so if you can get there quickly, the address is 19 Esmeralda Crescent. He is trying to keep tabs on it as I write...

Good luck if you are planning on chasing it!

Kind regards
Trevor

I was also there in the crowd Dirk so I missed you! <!-- s:cry: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_cry.gif" alt=":cry:" title="Crying or Very sad" /><!-- s:cry: --> . Did a whistle stop on my way to work at about 0635 and got some reasonable views. Matt got some really good photos. It is in my home pentad so I will pop back when I have more time later today. :D

I think I missed you by a few minutes. I left there around 6:30.

Glad you got it docandy! :D :D

I managed some good views (and photos) at about 8:30, and then walked back home.

This is a good example of why one should do home-pentad atlassing.

Glad you got to see the bird Henk! Good point indeed. Now we will both need to convince the National Rareties Committee before it is accepted for the pentad! :D

You're both more than welcome to use my shots for your ORFs. I'll probably post something on here tonight or tomorrow, or I can email some shots to you if you want.
