An Epic Birding Trip

Renee and I left Hermanus on 25 October and returned yesterday, on 27 November, after driving over 8000 kms round South Africa on a birding adventure.  Our aim was to identify as many local birds as possible, out of a total of around 1000 South African species.  One might think this an easy task, but we were severely challenged in putting together a list of 427 species.  For us, it was a trip record, as we had never previously beaten 400, but we did take nearly 5 weeks this time and visited a variety of locations and habitats. The map below gives a rough idea of our progress and I will attempt to describe our adventure in a series of articles to follow.
