01 December 2019 Birding Big Day

Pumba hosted their 2nd Birding Big Day this past weekend as part of the National Birdlife South Africa Big Day Event. Last year the team managed to identify 121 species and this was the benchmark aimed at for 2019.

Experienced birders were again invited from the local area and this year proved to be extremely fruitful, with sightings of 5 species never before seen on Pumba. The team managed to ID 139 birds in the day, far surpassing the total from last year.

We can’t wait for 2020 to try and outdo 2019! Here is a list of the full 139 birds seen for those guests who are visiting Pumba with a keen interest in our birds:
