Kirstenbosch Birding

Yesterday 27 June 2012, my wife and I went to Kirstenbosch Gardens for a quick lunch and birding trip. In the hour and a half had some nice birding with a pair of Swee-Waxbill a lot of Southern Double-collared Sunbirds. Also saw some Cape Spurfowl. And photographed an adult hadeda with a red ring ‘IP’ and a silver ring. Seems this bird was ringed somewhere in the peninsula by Res Altwegg and Doug Harebottle as a juvenile as part of an ADU project.
NB. Res replied saying that this Hadeda was ringed in Newlands in 2009.
