Hermanus Bird Club was started in 1997 by 19 members of whom more than half are still active in the Club. Twenty years later the membership is more than 200 strong.
We are a vibrant club, offering our members regular walks, away outings and monthly evening meetings which are addressed by well-known birders who have travelled far and wide.
Regular bird identification and other courses are offered and our grey matter is taxed in our annual quiz evening.
Our evening meetings are normally held on the 3rd Wednesday of the month in the hall in Fernkloof Nature Reserve. Meetings start at 19:00 from September to April, and at 18:00 from May to August.
Visitors are welcome.
We have a morning walk on the first Thursday of the month, sometimes close to home, sometimes further afield. We usually meet at a central point to consolidate transport.
The club is represented on the Western Cape Birding Forum and the Kleinrivier Estuary Forum. We regularly take part in the Coordinated Waterbird Counts (CWAC) and the Coordinated Avifaunal Roadcounts (CAR) of the Animal Demography Unit of the University of Cape Town.
