An enthusiastic group of members, led by Peter and Marie Dagg, tackled the main birding spots in and near Betty’s Bay despite a strong wind on the Club monthly walk on Thursday 7 April.
A decent total of 51 species, including a Secretarybird (Sekretarisvoël), was identified.
At Rooi-els, the first stop, the wind subsided for a while. During that time the highlight probably was a Peregrind Falcon (Swerfvalk) flying over. On the way back to the parked vehicles some members saw the elusive Cape Rock-jumper (Kaapse Berglyster) quite far away.
A full-force wind almost blew the birders off their feet at Stoney Point, but fortunately a group of Cape Penguins (Brilpikkewyne) posed nicely ouside the entrance to the sanctuary.
