Bird Hide Completed on Gondwana
20 July 2010
Last year in May, Mark gave one of the field guide´s Albert, resident birding expert, the green light and budget to start the first bird hide on Gondwana.
Initially it was only Albert and Forget working on the hide, planting the anchor poles and the deck. It was slow going as they were both guiding and just had an hour here and there to
work on it.
Later in the year Cobus joined the guiding team and started helping. It was amazing seeing the birds getting used to the sawing and all the noise and even seeing a pair of little
grebe´s raising three chicks in the summer we were working there.
In December the birdhide was completed; it is a beautiful, cosy little spot by a dam that is easily accessible for any private owner or guests visiting Gondwana. Just ask your ranger.
