EXCITING OVERSTRAND BIRDING

Posted on the 3rd December 2014

(Brian Vanderwalt reports on an impressive list of birds seen along the Cape Whale Coast. - Ed.)

Hi All,
Did some birding in the Overberg last week and saw:
Three Cape Rock-jumpers at 11.30am in the morning at Rooi-els. This is not the latest that I have seen them, but have seen them feeding low down at 2pm.
Olive Woodpecker feeding chick in Disa Kloof, Harold Porter.
African Paradise-Flycatcher sitting on nest high in tree in Disa Kloof.
Pair of African Black Duck at Kleinmond sewerage works.
Water Thick-knee with one egg in a nest in grass? Strange would have expected nest to be in sandy area.
Lone Amur Falcon feeding from overhead wire opposite Karwyderskraal refuse dump. Anyone know where the kestrel roost is? I cannot believe that this bird would fly to the Wellington or Swellendam roosts.
Denham’s Bustard male close to Karwyderskraal Road.
Black Harrier between Swartrivier bridge (Albertyn siding) and Botriver Road.
Regards,
Brian Vanderwalt
