Despite the icy 3 degrees, enthusiasm was high. As always, the early morning drive out of Hermanus towards Stanford was magnificent. A glowing red sun rose slowly over the mountains, and it was sufficient reward for braving the cold weather.
On Saturday 29 October, 21 club members and friends met up in Napier to start a morning’s birding trip around the gravel roads in the region.
The birding potential of the Napier region particularly as far as overseas birders are concerned was well illustrated through species such as Cape Clapper and Agulhas Long-billed larks, Cape Grassbird, Cape Longclaw and many more.
