Are you a bird watcher or bird photographer with a couple of hours to spare between meetings? Would you like to learn more about bird photography? Then join me on a walk through Kirstenbosch National Botanical Garden.

The magnificent indigenous gardens and adjacent forest attract good numbers of Cape endemics such as Sugarbirds and Sunbirds which are quite confiding and can be viewed and photographed at reasonably close distances.

Starting at the main entrance, armed with a list of the birds we are likely to encounter, we will systematically look for and identify as many bird species possible as we walk through varying habitat including forest and fynbos.

We will also stop to take photographs whenever opportunities arise, particularly of the colourful sunbirds amongst the proteas. I will also give advice on camera settings and composition to help you get better photographs.
Other things to note
Bring binoculars if you have them. DSLR/ bridge camera with a zoom lens. Longer is better, i.e. 18-200mm or 55-250mm. Sunscreen, weather gear (sunhat/rain or wind jackets) comfortable walking shoes

I've loved being out exploring nature and observing all types of creatures since I was a child. I became hooked on birdwatching about the same time that more affordable DSLR cameras became available. I was amazed at the details and action that was able to be captured with the camera. While looking through my photo's I often found that I had captured things that I was unaware of, and most would not be seen even through binoculars. The interaction between birds and their environment as they go about their business is fascinating and there is always something new and interesting to observe.

Patrick was an excellent host and guide. Although it was only for 2.5 hours it never felt rushed. I left far more knowledgeable and certainly felt very relaxed and as though I’d achieved what I set out to do, capture the beautiful birds of this part of the world, accurately and beautifully. Patrick is very easy to be with, thoughtful and helpful. Very highly recommend a morning or afternoon with him.

Patrick was fantastic. He's a genuinely lovely man who enjoyed sharing his expertise, and we enjoyed hearing it. Although the weather was miserable, we still had an enjoyable day, and Patrick even stayed a little longer so we didn't have to brave the rain. I'd highly recommend doing this guided walk!!!

A very windy night gave me low expectance of what the birds would do. But after a slow start we got good views of the birds in an wind-still Kirstenbosch.

I had a lovely morning with Patrick walking around Kirstenbosch. My particular interest was more on the bird watching side rather than photography, and so Patrick tailored our time together to match this (whilst also kindly taking pictures of the birds we saw for me!). We spotted lots of species, including a Cape Batis which I'd been keen to see, and Patrick was very knowledgeable about the birds and the gardens which was great. He als took the time afterwards to run through the list of species we'd seen and refamiliarise me with these. I thoroughly enjoyed the experience and would highly recommend to anyone else with an interest in bird watching or photography! Thanks again Patrick!

I had a lovely morning with Patrick. He was softly spoken, kind and new his birds very well. We found lots of species that I had not come across before and he knew their habits.
