Victorin’s Warbler – Mike Bridgeford and Gareth Robbins -
This bird is a Fynbos special, and one of the sought-after birds of our region by Birders. It is an exceptionally skulking bird, which is always heard but seldom seen!!
I have tried for many years to even get a partial shot of these birds, with no luck at all. Yesterday Gareth Robbins took me out to try and find the bird - we found several species in the Fynbos, and I managed to get two reasonable shots of the bird. There always seems to be a stick across the bird – I am sure that it is the nature of this bird to remain as covered as possible! This would be regarded as an exceptional sighting, and certainly the best I have ever managed!
