With all those intending to traverse the cape this year I wonder how many will come back and say we seen the Palm Cockatoo or any other fauna for that matter, or will they just sit in their aircon jallopies whizzing along and not see nothing. Be interesting I reckon.

Not many I'd guess for 2 reasons. One, because most would be able to use correct English & instead say something like "we saw a palm cockatoo.
And two, over half the travellers couldn't give a rats if they saw the black & red bird as they are more interested in the fishing, the history, drinking beer around the campfire or whizzing along the track as for them it's simply the adventure of getting to the top. Each to their own ;-)

Last year i was very lucky. Whilst having breakfast saw a pair directly above me. A few days later whilst camped near the Jardine Crossing, a large flock flew over head on sunset and returned next morning. Hope you get to see one, they are a special bird.
Cheers
