S.A. Rare Bird News – Saturday 6th September

Geoff Finney made an astounding regional discovery when he found and photographed a BUSH BLACKCAP at Harold Porter Botanical Gardens in Betty’s Bay at around midday today. The bird was near the entrance to Disa Kloof and was apparently quite vocal for the whole time that he was there.

This represents the first record for the Western Cape and no doubt will get a number of provincial listers out there tomorrow morning to look for it. What a bird for the province – well done Geoff!

Good luck if you are planning on going for it!

Kind regards
Trevor Hardaker

If any HBC member goes to Harold Porter to see this bird, good luck and please let us know if you succeed! BP
