‘Difficult’ birding made easy

Club members set out on two separate trips on Saturday, inspired by Mike Ford’s excellent course on identifying “difficult” bird species, presented last week.

More than 50 species were identified on each trip, both along Karwyderskraal Road and Swart River Road. Highlights were African Marsh Harrier, Black Harrier, Yellow-billed Kite, Denham’s Bustard, Red-capped Lark and Large-billed Lark.

Some species might be easily confused and difficult to identify, but good birding in the Hermanus area can be easy, commented one of the members.
