Has anybody located the Taita Falcons at Strydom Tunnel in the recent weeks?

Aunty BK, it is definitely worthwhile to stop there and look for 20 - 30mins if you are passing by. The problem with them is that they crawl up into those crevices and cracks in the rock face. But someone like Michael is really good to get you onto it. If he is not there, there are two ladies who are also very well clued up on the birds.

So have a go at it! <!-- s:wink: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_wink.gif" alt=":wink:" title="Wink" /><!-- s:wink: -->

I have stopped there on 2 occasions and both times Michael showed me the falcons. His telephone number is 079 2611 559. I was alone on both occasions and paid him R150=00 for his assistance. (It is best to call him in advance and arrange an approximate time to meet him - the cell reception at the craft stall is not very good and you might miss him if you wait untill the last minute before you contact him - he told me that he built his family a 4 room house with the money he earns through bird guiding, and I think it is great if we can support a fellow birder and conservationist).

Went past there on 1 Dec. Tried to find it myself in the morning, but no luck. The following day I went past there again round noon. Michael was there and he helped me locate 1 individual.
Best of luck.
