This evening I had the privilege of spending a couple of hours with 14 of our wonderful members who had spent the day – most kicking off at 05h30 – in a howling gale to participate in the Mini Big Birding Day. They were all exhausted but truly satisfied that it had been a day well spent. Most were club stalwarts – please join in next time!!
In these terrible conditions – the wind did not abate all day – the team with the most species sighted on the day got 125 species. A great achievement in the conditions considering the best ever score for one of these days is 136!!
To all who participated – thank you for putting in this great effort. To ALL the members of our club please consider joining in on these days when next we have one. This is a great opportunity to learn about the birds and their habitats – this is a really fun day where you will learn a lot and make great friends in the wonderful Hermanus Bird Club community.
