I am missing quite a few specials on my list for the Golden Gate area/biome. I'm planning a trip next week.

Does anybody have specific details where I can find the following:

Yellow breasted Pipit

African Rock Pipit

Orange breasted rockjumper

Drakensburg Siskin

Barrats warbler

Botha's lark

Pink Billed Lark

Yellow breasted Pipit - Only ever seen it in Suikerbos, the Memel area is said to be good for it, but despite 3 trips there, I have had no luck.
African Rock Pipit - Karoo, Molteno pass, but I can only think that the Sentinel pass in the vicinity of the Rockjumper site should be a good spot as well.
Orange breasted rockjumper - -28.723079, 28.895159
Drakensburg Siskin - Apparently in the vicinity of the Rockjumper but we weren't fortunate to find it.
Barrats warbler - Magoebaskloof, but the Waldens got really good photos of it in Golden gate. Have a chat with them perhaps.
Botha's lark -28.093608, 29.051285
Pink Billed Lark - Still on my wishlist, but the Botha's Lark area should be a spot as well.

Hi Dirk,

Thanks very much!!! Exactly what I was looking for. Although I have a feeling that none of those are going to be easy to find.

By the way, I finally got my Knysna Woody at Ebb and Flow to complete my Garden Route bucket list. I also found a great spot for Knysna warbler literally 200m from my new house.

Regards,
Mossie

Well done, Mossie!

Glad you got that Woodpecker! I eventually had to go to Oribi gorge to find mine last September.

Good luck with your target list. Holding thumbs for you!
