It's day three of our avitourism trip (https://www.timeslive.co.za/sunday-times/lifestyle/travel/2024-04-14-birding-for-beginners-a-feather-finding-mission-on-the-garden-route/) and we have many spectacular settings and close to 100 birds behind us. Starting in George, our group of media mavens has been delving into the quirky world of birding tourism and has already learnt a whole new vocabulary. ..
