Sunny birding at Stanford

In the face of predicted gale-force winds, heavy rains and even snow, a group of 18 club members experienced a lovely, sunny Thursday morning birding in Stanford.

A walk on the bank of the Klein River and a visit to the hide at the local dam produced a count of 45 birds, including a Giant Kingfisher, Purple Heron, African Goshawk, African Swamphen and Black Crake.
