No less than 27 keen birders attended the walk at Beaumont Farm this morning. We were ably led by Margie and Barbara, who had a pleasant three kilometre stroll arranged around some orchards and along the stream. This enabled us to see 42 bird species on the farm, before enjoying our tea on the lawns.
Then some of us returned via the Swartrivier road to Hermanus. The list was augmented by a further 15 birds along this productive road, including sightings of 4 Denham’s Bustards, an unidentified Falcon and a couple of African Black Ducks, bringing the total for the trip to 57.
