De Bos Wetland Trail

 

Yesterday’s walk along the De Bos Wetland Trail with Frank Woodvine was thoroughly enjoyed by a total of 31 HBC members.

Frank, as always was an excellent guide pointing out a number of interesting features as we moved along.

The sun came out and we enjoyed a lovely walk, albeit a wee bit vigorous up the steep hill to the edge of the reservoir.

A total of 39 species wereseen. Lester van Groenigen’s bird list is given below.
