This list is for routes 64 and 63 as given in “The Chamberlain Guide to Birding Gauteng”.
The list was produced with Roberts PDA and for some reason even though the checklist is set to Roberts 7 the result list is Roberts 6 naming. I've added Roberts 7 names in brackets for some of the birds but not all.

Hi Francois,

“The Chamberlain Guide to Birding Gauteng” is an excellent book, I use it myself when going out birding. It is great to keep records of species seen in these locations and share with others, so yes by all means submit lists!
