With the addition of the new Groen Spoeg area to this park the bird list has grown impressively. While there in January doing some bird atlassing the birds ranged from desert species such as Double-Banded Courser and Spike and the gang (Spike-heeled larks never travel alone!) seen in the area between Soebastfontein and Wildepaardejagskloofpas to the Caspian Terns and white-fronted plovers at the Groen River Estuary.

For this for whom the Kgalagadi is too far, this park can easily be reached from Cape Twon in about five hours - and has a rugged beauty and great birding all of its own.

A foto or two of the park and its birds will do nicely for some of us who live at the other side of the country.

Thanx in advance.
