On the subject of migrants, I finally got to see a Fairy Flycatcher in my garden (Fourways Gardens, northern edge of Joburg) on Wed 8 August. Yippeee!! I was waiting for it. What a cracking bird! It has to be one of my favourite birds. It seems to favour the Acacia trees in my garden, actively gleaning from all the leaves. Soon after seeing this species, I saw a Brown-backed Honeybird, another occasional garden visitor, always checking out the bees nests I have (I don't remove hives from occupied nesting logs anymore).

Good birding.

Hi Andre,

It also took me a while to see this impressive little bird. Before this year, it was still a missing tick on the list but strangely I have seen this bird 10 times already this winter; mostly in Gauteng.
