Once again, as with the 2015 Birdquest tour, the entire country was still in the grips of a severe drought and most of the inland water bodies had dried up with the extreme arid conditions of the previous year still prevailing. Owing to these extreme conditions with very few birds calling or responding to playback made this tour even more challenging than the previous year, but in saying this we did manage to do very well with all of the resident and special species as well as all the target species being observed.
