A novice birder visits Mozambique

After hearing about a similar birding trip to Mocambique which fellow members of the Rustenburg Bird Club, had undertaken together with Maans Booysen of Centurion. I made inquiries and within a month I was on my way to Mozambique, driven by Maans Booysen, in search of birds like the Crab Plovers (featured in the April/May 2008 edition of Africa Birds and Birding page 18), the Olive Sunbird and the Olive-headed Weaver to mention just a few.

Mozambique – Martin en Hanlie Slabbert

A recent trip to Mozambique (12 – 17 June 2008), more specifically Xai-Xai, Barra and Panda was a great experience with more than 230 species recorded in the 6 days. Maans Booysen was our guide and the manager of Hyliota camp in the Panda region. He can be contacted on 072-916-6103 for guiding and information on Hyliota camp.

A first sighting is a rare pleasure, something that lingers in the minds of most birders. Today is no exception. What makes this particular sighting so indelible is my awareness that very few people have seen this species. But here, literally in hand, are 12 Olive-headed Weavers - an intriguing and rarely seen species.

The collection forms a part of the larger faunal collection of the British Natural History Museum.
