A group of approximately 50 experienced and new birders gathered at the Macassar Dunes Conservation Area for this highly anticipated Cape Bird Club outing. Macassar is an excellent birding destination and it did not disappoint. We recorded 85 species in just under three hours.

It was great to have several junior members in attendance, including some from Bishops Bird Club.

Some highlights were Pectoral Sandpiper (a national rarity), African Snipe, Common Sandpiper and African Black Duck.
