Although the Cape Parrots were by far the main attraction, there are some other birds to keep an eye out for in and around King William’s Town.
High up on a hill just in front of the hospital are a few trees with hundreds of birds – herons, egrets, ibises all crowding together in a few select trees. The sight and sounds of these birds has to be seen to be believed!
POND OUTSIDE OF TOWN
I’m not sure if this pond has a name but it does attract a lot of different waterbirds such as various ducks and geese. I forgot to take notes so hopefully someone can help me identify them. Sadly there is a lot of rubbish dumped around the pond by locals which made me a bit uncomfortable being around there. What kind of people would want to spoil what would otherwise be a nice, peaceful area?
