Firstly thanks to the Hillcrest Conservancy and in particular George Victor for arranging access at 06:00 which was much appreciated. We had a very good turn out ±36 (all those New Year resolutions!) and our composite bird countfrom the 3 groups was 69. I think the specials were the excellent views of the Brown backed Honeybird, Lesser Honeyguide, Golden Weaver and a really superb Grassbird. Our raptor count was not too shabby either with good views of Common (Steppe) Buzzard and a pair of African Harrier Hawks, YBK’s, Long crested Eagle and brief views of a Crowned Eagle. Some photos attached.
Cheers and best wishes for good birding in 2013 – Elena
