5th March 2018 – Kirstenbosch National Botanical Gardens, Cape Town

Our last visit to Kirstenbosch on this trip to Cape Town: I was hoping to see male sunbirds (which we had seen on a previous trip) but we were unsuccessful but not unhappy as we had another lovely walk around the gardens and saw a spotted eagle-owl, and plenty of other birds

Not sure about this one – maybe Cape robin-chat?

2nd March 2018 – Kirstenbosch National Botanical Gardens, Cape Town

We made a return to Kirstenbosch after visiting the nearby  Winery at Groot Constantia just to relax after a busy morning.

Again we enjoyed the gardens but didn’t see much birdlife other than the ubiqitous Guineafowl and Egyptian geese.
