After the Palmiet BMCG (Bird Monitoring and Conservation Group) meeting 13h30 Saturday 13 September, we took a short stroll to the river’s edge.
We were delighted to have good sightings of Mountain Wagtails (see photos) at the lowest deck from the hide/lapa. One flew up into a crevice of the rock face (looking slightly upstream) which we think is its nesting site (see picture).
In the 20 minutes we were there we recorded:
Southern Black Tit
Mountain Wagtail (2) at nest
Grey-headed Bushshrike (heard)
Southern Boubou (heard)
African Dusky Flycatcher
This excludes the birds heard at the lapa during the BMCG meeting: Hadeda Ibis, Sombre Greenbul, Bar-throated Apalis, Purple-crested Turaco, and Yellow-billed Kite.
