An early morning start on what must have been the most perfect morning at what is becoming Cape Town’s premier birding location, the Standfontein Sewerage Works. We were first through the gate, hoping to find the Spotted Crake. In the end after a few hours we had to throw in the towel and leave with our target bird a no show.
All was not lost as we managed to tick off a new lifer, the Greater Painted Snipe.
It is always nice to have such a pleasant and very helpful crowd of birders all helping each other to find the target birds.
