Introduction to the BirdLife Overberg Annual Bird Count

BirdLife Overberg has set up an annual bird count for the Overberg district. Take part and use the BirdLasser app to record your sightings in the region. Participation is limited to BirdLife Overberg members.

The area being covered

The target area is restricted to the Overberg district, excluding Dyer Island. This is shown in the map below. This does limit the area to the mainland and excludes pelagic outings. But complete coverage of the area is more feasible for more birders.
