The missus managed to get a nice pic of the Narina Trogon in our garden. I was standing, rake in hand, with strict instructions not to move lest I disturb the bird.

Also a less seen sunbird around our parts.

Some more recent ones;

Black cuckooshrike
Golden-tailed woodpecker
Thick-billed weaver (also known as vice-grip by the bird-ringing fraternity who encourage novices to remove them from the nets. Not easily forgotten)
African Goshawk (juv) been nailing our Red-eyed doves recently.
