June 17 @ 8:30 am - 2:30 pm

Cape Bird Club 70 years logo

 

Meet at 08h30. This is our annual visit to the best location for land-based seabird watching on the Peninsula. It’s a good way to get to grips with some pelagic species that are mostly encountered on
pelagic trips. Hopefully there will be some winter gales to drive the seabirds in closer to shore.
Spotting scopes will be available but if you have one, please bring it along. Afterwards we will move off to one of the bays for a picnic brunch, so bring refreshments.

Directions: From Simon’s Town head south along the M4 and follow the Cape Point signs to the reserve. If coming from the Kommetjie side take the M65 to the reserve, which is well sign-posted.
We meet in the parking area just beyond the pay point. Don’t forget your Wild Card as Cape Point is very pricey to enter these days.
