At least 3 apalises seen flitting through Acacia Karoo trees and the male and female can be heard in this clip, as well as bill snapping. There might have been a territorial dispute because they moved off to a further bush towards the end of the clip.

Bar-throated Apalis - Apalis thoracica Faansie Peacock 2017-08-11 West Coast National Park, West Coast DC, Western Cape, Western Cape (South Africa) (50 m) duet, female, male, song -

A duet between a pair of apalises in dense coastal strandveld. The sharp clicking sound is one bird, the knocking another. Towards the end of the clip there is a raspy sound which is a Karoo Prinia. This intrusive little meddler immediately flew in when the apalises started calling, and added its own voice to the medley. It eventually chased off the apalises. Presumably there is some competition for resources between these two co-occurring insectivorous passerines.
