Western Cape Birding
To me Lamberts Bay is the epitome of the west coast where the cold nutrient rich waters of the Atlantic drive the daily life-cycles in this partially arid yet bio-diverse landscape. Take this together with the numerous small interspaced coastal towns, each with its own endless character and you have the makings of a really great birding adventure. ...

Western Cape Birding
Baden-Powel drive is one of the many roads that runs along the spectacular False Bay coastline and links various parts of the Cape Town metropole. The road which runs right next to the sandy beach front and crashing waves will often produce views of Cape Cormorants flying in their characteristic V-shaped skeins as well as endangered African Black Oystercatchers...

Western Cape Birding
There has always been much debate over whether the meeting point of the cold Atlantic Ocean with the warm Indian Ocean is at Cape Point or at Cape Agulhas. One thing is for certain though; the entire southern tip of Africa is rightfully one of the world’s biodiversity hotspots!

Western Cape Birding
The rugged coastline within the Agulhas National Park and at the southern tip of Africa draws thousands of people to the point where many contest that the warm Indian Ocean meets with the cold Atlantic. The visitors stand next to the plaque, showing their position right on the edge of Africa, have their photograph taken and then generally rush...

Western Cape Birding
Heavy, mid-winter storms had been lashing the Western Cape with a weeks worth of howling winds, pelting rain and ice cold temperatures and I was by now more than a little grumpy of having had to stay cooped up inside for so long. With the remnants of the cold front finally passing us, it was an extremely welcome break...
African Black Oystercatcher by wildlife and conservation photographer Peter Chadwick.jpg
Western Cape Birding
The sheer beauty of the scene in front of me took my breath away and I was totally unprepared for the incredible views and to be standing on top of the high cliffs as the incessant calling of cicadas accentuated the mid-afternoon heat. Fortunately, a gentle sea breeze cooled the otherwise hot air but was still not enough to...

Western Cape Birding
A light mist rose up from the Willem Apple Dam and the large Cattle Egret flock that was roosting in the reed beds looked like ghosts in the misty half-light, rising and falling as they moved position amongst the sagging reeds and in preparation for the new day. 
Wire-Tailed Swallow by wildlife and conservation photographer Peter Chadwick.jpg
Limpopo Birding
The lowveld of South Africa is renowned for its diversity of birdlife and right at the heart of this is the town of Phalaborwa, which also lies on the doorstep of the Kruger National Park. For me, every trip here always brings excitement with memories of colourful Lilac-Breasted Rollers, Crested Barbets, Southern Yellow-Billed Hornbills and a variety of big...
Limpopo Birding
It is as though Polokwane is the central point from where all bushveld birds radiate outwards with eastern species overlapping with western species and northern species meeting their southern counterparts.
Yellow-Billed Duck by wildlife and conservation photographer Peter Chadwick.jpg
Gauteng Birding
When traveling, I often get stuck with a couple of hours to spend between connecting flights and would much rather spend this time constructively carrying out some good local birding than being trapped in a boring departure lounge. Fortunately, Johannesburg provides such an opportunity with the Rietvlei Nature Reserve being situated just half an hour’s drive from the international...
