TC Robertson Outing 17th February Feedback

This was a most enjoyable outing although a bit disappointing by the small turnout. Come on Durbanites, Scottburgh isn’t so far away.

There were 8 of us in total and two visitors who are keen to become members, I will pass on details.

Despite the small group it actually turned out very well with a lot of interaction. Over fifty different species were sighted. Some specials included Little Bee-eater, African Paradise-Flycatcher, Malachite Kingfisher (4 in one dam), White-faced Duck and African Black Duck (although fairly common this was the first time we have seen them at TC), Goliath Heron, Sacred Ibis, Spur-winged Goose, Chinspot Batis, Red-billed Firefinch, Common Waxbill and the rest of the fifty sightings. We had fun identifying warblers – Sedge, Marsh and Lesser Swamp.

In a way, the floods in December did some redesigning of TC but down the line it will probably not be a bad thing, right now it is still officially closed.

Four of us stayed for a braai afterwards – they have nice braai facilities available there.

    I left a comment previously but I must have not verified it or something. I’m sorry to have missed it, the distance is not an issue but unfortunately I had a prior arrangement .Did you actually see the warblers? or heard only?
