Birding on the Klein River

Our outing on the Klein river aboard the Lady Stanford was a great success.  We were blessed with cool weather and the local birds were in evidence along the whole route – so  much so that we ended up with a trip list of 64 species.  Peter was, as usual, a great and informative host and he made sure that we missed nothing!
