He loves spotting new birds, he loves bird lists, he loves bird books, he loves bird hides…

Every couple of weeks he gathers his bird bag and he heads out to a local bird watching spot….

This week he took his sister and they headed for the wetlands at Strandfontein, the Waste Water Works at Zeekoevlei…

    This is really lovely! Reminds me of our bird sightings while on holiday in SA, albeit in totally different parts of the country (St Lucia and some of the game reserves). Thanks for sharing!

    Hi Katy… I love when you visit our blog!!! This is indeed a great place for any birder and our local wetlands are packed with birds and so very rewarding for our young birdwatcher… You should come over and visit before you head home – just a little off your route, but I think you guys would love it!!!

    Oh Stephanie… I wish I could package some up and send you a day of sunshine – really!!! I have a kiddo, hood #6, who keeps asking when it is our turn to have snow – never my sweet child!!! Never!!! My spring burst forth soon for you guys!!!
