A cruise on the Klein River this morning with the Hermanus Bird Club proved to be fruitful. We saw a total of 55 species and these included a wonderful sighting of a Martial Eagle soaring overhead. Other raptors noted were African Harrier-Hawk, African Fish Eagle, Jackal Buzzard and Common Buzzard. There were many African Darters and Kingfishers, and all the usual waterbirds, although we did not go far enough downstream to see any Flamingos. The weather was perfect and the cruise ended all too soon, but we had a great outing!
