Hermanus Bird Club

Fernkloof Reserve is home to a fascinating variety of birds and almost 100 species have been identified in this small area, including 5 of the 6 fynbos endemic species of the Western Cape. These are the Orange-breasted Sunbird, the Cape Sugarbird, the Cape Siskin, the Cape Rockjumper and Victorin's Warbler.

Hikers and coastal walkers, making use of the many trails through the reserve, will pass through a number of habitat types. The woodland, fynbos, riverine scrub, mountain slopes and coastal regions are inhabited by many different species of birds.

A printable checklist of the birds of Fernkloof Nature Reserve is given on our website. Further information can be obtained from various field guides, e.g. Roberts, Sasol and Newmans.

Fernkloof is the headquarters of the Hermanus Bird Club, which has been going strong since 1997. The members monitor the birdlife there by means of regular walks and an ongoing ringing program. The club meets in the Fernkloof Hall on the third Wednesday of each month, when a variety of bird-related activities take place - presentations, discussions , quizzes and slide shows. Refreshments are served afterwards. Other club activities include a walk on the first Thursday morning of every month (often in Fernkloof, or otherwise in other local birding spots), birding competitions, regular day trips and overnight outings to birding areas slightly further away.

Visitors are most welcome to join these meetings and our regular walks.
