HBC Sundowner Cruise on the ‘River Rat’

 

Despite the threatening clouds on Wednesday 24th January, a congenial group of 12 club members and a few friends enjoyed a wonderful sunset cruise on the Kleinriver Lagoon.  Some 45 bird species were seen, although we were unable to match the numbers seen by the morning cruise!  Water birds abounded, but some of the highlights were the good sightings of Purple Swamphen, Malachite and Giant Kingfisher and 5 raptor species, including an African Marsh Harrier. Sadly, the Martial Eagle did not oblige again, but well done to Ronnie for his photo of the Martial  and his excellent photos of the birds seen on the early morning cruise.
