Sunday 27 November 2011: Pietman Basson just called me and reported that a group of birders are on an outing in the Witzenberg valley. They have just witnessed four Malachite Sunbirds and three Cape Sugarbirds sitting in one pincushion bush, while a pair of Blue Cranes walking in the background. How's this for a wonderful sighting? We hope to receive a more comprehensive report from them. - Ed.
