Greyton Outing

 

Lester writes,

“We could not have asked for better weather. 17 club members arrived in Greyton with the temperature a chilly 5 degrees but it warmed up quickly to 18 degrees with clear skies and it remained almost windless for most of the day.

However, the birds were hiding and there was a distinct lack of birds calling. In the two areas that we birded we only managed a small list (I recorded 34 species). Probably the best birds included a covey of Grey-winged Francolin that were calling loudly, but remained out of sight, a calling Long billed Pipit and a few Cape Clapper Larks seen by a few.

The walk along the trail in the Greyton Nature Reserve was particularly scenic with Proteas in flower throughout the area and attendant Cape Sugar Birds and Orange-breasted Sunbirds.  A very enjoyable walk but again not many species seen!”
