Iphithi N.R. Outing- 20May
With Sandi Du Preez
Sixteen birders turned up for the outing to this lovely reserve, which was a rather large group for a gloomy Wednesday!
Specials were White-eared Barbets, Grey-headed Bushshrike (heard and seen), Black Crake, African Crowned Eagle, and 5 Sunbird species (Amethyst, Collared, Greater Double-collared, Grey and Olive.)
40 species were recorded with one extra seen after most had left (a house sparrow flying back and forth with nesting material).
Of interest was a rather uncommon moth – Dimorphic Tiger moth.
