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.

I'm staring at a nest 12 meters up a tree. The scary part is that I am at eye-level with it … not very comforting unless you're used to being at a height equivalent to that of a four-storey building. Sweat is running into my eyes as I peer through the viewfinder. It's hot outside, but that's nothing compared to the heat trapped within my small hide. Not even the honey bee that has just crawled down my sock into my right boot can distract me.
