Birding at Stanford

The Hermanus Bird Club arranged a cruise on the River Rat.  The start was a bit delayed as vandals had stolen the battery and cables for the motor, however, this was rectified and we set off about an hour behind schedule.  The weather was perfect to start, without any wind and an overcast sky.  We saw about 50 species, including an unusually large number of Purple Swamp Hens.  Also of interest was an African Harrier-Hawk nest with an adult and immature bird attending.  Finally we wrapped up the morning with a fine sighting of the Intermediate Egret, first seen by Barbara and Margie just outside Stanford.
