I didn’t expect our stay at the Excelsior Estate Winery at Robertson to provide such good opportunities for bird photography. On the first evening we walked down to the river amongst the vines and saw weavers and southern red bishop birds. The following day we were able to use a golf trolley and venture further into and around the vineyard. The advantages of the golf trolley was that the birds weren’t so nervous about our presence.
The stars for me were the bigger birds we saw, an African darter, a black-headed heron and a buzzard and the smallest, the southern double collared sunbird.
