Bird Walks in Marloth Park
These take place every Saturday morning at 07:00, meeting at Henk van Rooyen Park. The Crocodile River is slowly recovering from the recent floods, during which much damage was done to the riverine vegetation and mud banks. This, combined with the fact that the migrants are on their way North, has brought our average count for a 2 hour walk to around 50 species. Four new species have recently been added to the Marloth bird list, bringing our total number of species to 356. These are Grey-headed Kingfisher, Broad-billed Roller, Booted Eagle and Red-billed Teal.
Bird lists are available at R30 each and all enquiries can be directed to Tony Newey at 0839981156.
