Hi all

Some of you may remember me 1999/2000 when I worked in Tembe Elephant Park in KZN at the lodge. I was one of the threesome that "re-discovered" the Plain-backed Sunbird (Blue-throated Sunbird then) in the forest.

I'm based up in northern Rwanda now that is also birding heaven. Had an African (Angloan) Pitta at home last month.

Looking forward to some great chats again :D

Hi Marcell,

Welcome to the forum!

Had a look at your website for the lodge in Rwanda. I gather it is not quite finished yet. Was the Angola Pitta seen near the lodge?

Cheers

My house is about 2km from where the Tented Camp will be but is only 2 streets up from the main road through Ruhengeri, so pretty much in town. It was at the house for 2 and a half days so had plenty of time to have a good look at it and just enjoy it being there. BIG time lifer for me :D

There was another sighting about a week earlier (that I found out about by fluke) about 10km west of Ruhengeri in a patch of indigenous forest that's outside the national park but I have no details about this sighting.
