Trip report: Exploring Stormsvlei to Protem

Besides the cold, and being only one coffee in, I was questioning of my decision to come this far to be birding in mist so thick I could barely see the road. The gravel road from Stormsvlei to Protem is one I had not explored before.

Trip report: van der Stel Pass

A small group met in rainy conditions ready for a morning of birding, which had already put off some of the potential participants. Nonetheless, our guide for the day was bullish that conditions would be better where we were heading and we were keen to head out.

Trip report: Birding in the Strandveld

It was a cold, chilly morning as we left Hermanus heading towards Stanford. As the light began to grow, the mountains mirrored against the lagoon was a spectacular sight, a reflection of the power of nature. This set the tone for an awesome birding drive through parts of the Overberg.

An afternoon on the Lady Stanford

Graeme Hatley and Richard Masson had the opportunity to travel down the Klein River on the Lady Stanford. The highlight of the trip was a good sighting of an Overberg rarity, an African Jacana.
