What a privilege to end the year with a great birding trip.
On Tuesday, 31 December 2019 I met with my three clients from Nairobi and the UK (Three ladies, daughter, mother and grandmother.)
We met in Sedgefield at 8h30 which is actually late in terms of morning birding. However, we had a wonderful trip and logged approximately 50 species in three hours.
Our list included species such as Knysna Turaco, Intermediate Egret, Greater Flamingo, White-fronted Plover, African Black Oyster Catcher, African Marsh Harrier, Grey Sunbird, Forest Buzzard etc.
I have logged the species on the “Birdlasser App” for submission to SABAP2 (The South African Bird Atlas Project 2)
We were fortunate to see a pair of Goliath Heron amongst the flock of Greater Flamingo near one of the local bird hides. Levaillant’s Cisticola and Lesser Swamp Warblers were all over in the vlei and marshy areas.
Knysna Warbler could be heard but unfortunately not seen.
