MKHUZI WEEKEND AWAY WITH DAVE BISHOP
Dave did a WOODLAND versus FOREST BIRDS COURSE at Paradise Valley on Saturday 18th May A walk the next day at Shongweni Dam was worthwhile…..a highlight being a number of Lanner Falcons displaying above our heads.
He kindly offered his guidance to anyone joining him at Mkhuze the following weekend where we had hot days & nights & braaing in the evenings with a full moon overhead has left us with great memories.
We saw a number of good birds in the various habitats………this is what makes Mkhuzi so special ………..we found the airstrip particularly rewarding where the Flappet Lark was a new tick for us The Fig Tree Forest walk rewarded us with the Grey Tit-Flycatcher too.
The Bearded Woodpecker was foraging in the rest camp & we had good sightings of the Bearded Scrub-Robin & White-throated Robin-Chat.
