Greater Plettenberg Bay – Uplands Farmlands
About the Birding
A drive North on the R340 towards Plettenberg Game Reserve (-takes you up into a drier, more grassland and mixed farmland habitat. Jackal and Forest Buzzard are around along with Common Buzzard, European Roller and Amur Falcon in late summer. Denham’s Bustard, Secretary Bird, White Stork (in summer) and Crowned Lapwing are sometimes seen in the fields. The fields with shorter grass can be good for Black-winged Lapwing.
