FIREFINCH Trip Report: Namibia

February 23rd, 2023|0 Comments

Every few days there is a brand new birding article on FIREFINCH. It's a real treat when you unlock your phone and see the notification! Today on FIREFINCH we travel through the beautiful vast nothingness of Namibia. In the blazing heat of December nogal! But thanks to Hamman Prinsloo's writing and stunning photos, we can experience it all in comfort. Normally this content is only available to subscribers, but I thought I'd share Hamman's great report here. It is packed with useful tips and stakeouts, and I also added some maps to the birding sites. For more such high quality material, check out FIREFINCH app!

Seabird Identification on Flock

April 18th, 2017|6 Comments

BLSA's Flock at Sea (again) departs in a few days! Will you be onboard? My wife asked me to help her prepare for the pelagic birding...and I ended up drawing a whole bunch of cartoony seabirds. If you're a little rusty on telling your prions from your petrels, I think you'll find my guide to South African shorebirds useful. Print a copy and take it with, or save it on your phone. A quick and easy, 3 page guide to the basics (in pdf or jpeg). Feel free to share.
