A MORNING'S BIRDING AT DE MOND NATURE RESERVE

Posted on the 11th December 2014

We had another successful and enjoyable BIRP count at De Mond Nature Reserve yesterday. These outings are just getting better and better all the time and we want to encourage more members to participate in these. It's great fun and we are learning all the time. I've gone into December go-slow strike mode, so rather than drafting a full report I post a photo article. Thanks to Paula Combrink and Riaan Jacobs for providing images, and Keir Lynch for setting up the outing.
Peter Chadwick recently posted a brilliant article on birding at De Mond. Read more about it here:

Can someone tell us what plant this is?
Can someone tell us why snails would do this?
