Notesdirectly above restaurant area. 1. LMW recolonised this area after being cleared because they messed the tables. 2. 4 different weaver species found above the restaurant site. Village, Southern, Lesser & Spectacled weavers. 3. The previous Village weaver report (2013-10-12), in knob thorn above the staff quarters has been totally vacated - probably due to exposure and predation. 4. no ringed birds noted between 17h45 & 18h15. 5. current site also has many 'fallen' village weaver nests.
