Orange Ground Thrush, which sang a lot but showed little. The drive to Eshowe was a long one, but memorable for African Firefinch alongside its brood parasite Dusky Indigobird, and several spectacular Long-tailed Paradise Whydah. A short stop at Entumeni was rewarded with Lemon Dove, a juvenile White-starred Robin fed by its parent, and Croaking Cisticola. At Eshowe we focussed our attention on the bird-rich Dlinza Forest.
