Birding Big Day 2018 – Final Results

Hermanus Bird Club

The final results are in and I can confirm that (sounds like Strictly Come Dancing!) we scored 155 species and came 77th out of 304 teams.  There were four teams that scored over 300 birds, all from Limpopo and Mpumalanga provinces, with the winner achieving 323 – a really magnificent number for a 24 hour period!  Our local competition, team Rockjumper, achieved 122 species.  All the results can be viewed at

and individual team maps can be accessed by clicking on the team names.  These maps show the locations of every bird recorded and zooming in on them adds detail.  Clicking on the symbols on the map will show the name of the bird seen at that point.
