Morning Birding Expedition

We start off in the indigenous forest at Woodville. Here you will be able to have a close up look at a majestic 600 year old Yellowwood before we start birding.

An easy walk which, with stops, should take about an hour will produce some interesting birds - Knysna Loerie, Grey Cuckoo Shrike, Cape White Eye, Yellow Throated Warbler, Blue Mantled Fly Catcher, Red Billed Wood Hoopoe and hopefully the elusive but beautiful Narina Trogon - plus Woodpeckers, Bulbuls and Robins.

At the picnic site we should see Chorister Robin, Black Headed Oriole and with a bit of luck the seldom seen (but often heard) Knysna Warbler.

From Woodville we go down to the hide at Rondevlei. Here you will be able to see at close range Sedge and Marsh Warblers, coots, moorhens, Grebes (including the Crested Grebe) at least 4 species of Ducks, Spoonbills, Cormorants (2 species), Black-winged Stilt, Herons and Egrets plus a number of Waders. If we are patient we will be rewarded with a sighting an African Rail and Black Crake. Baillons Crake has also been seen at this hide and there is a resident Malachite Kingfisher. A walk along the vlei shore will produce sightings of Grassbird, Stone Chat, Le Valiants Cisticola, Marsh Harrier and Fish Eagle.

It is not unusual to see more than 50 species on this morning expedition which makes it a very rewarding birding experience.
