White-backed Duck at Cotswold Downs, Hillcrest

BirdLife Port Natal ran a stand at the Kloof Conservancy Open Indigenous Gardens weekend held at The Cotswold Golfing Estate in Hillcrest. While the cold overcast weather made birding difficult, a bird list of the weekend sightings by Derek Spencer exceeded 50 species. Of particular interest to the experts was a White-Backed Duck swimming among White-faced Ducks, African Jacanas, Common Moorhens and Black Crakes. Our stand over looking a small pond, raised much interest and many inquiries from visitors.
