Yesterday we (Peter and Jenny Spence, Tessa White and I) were atlassing in Jubilee Park and then North Park. The first birds we saw at Jubilee Park were six Magpie Mannikins,all busy carrying nesting material to a small tree. On investigating there was no sign of even a half-built nest. I am not sure what records there are of Magpie Mannikins breeding in KZN but I would be interested to know.
