INFORMATION FOR BIRDERS:
Liz Delmont, manager and owner of Liz at Lancaster although very novice is a keen birder. She is a member of the Delta Birding Group. Delta Park which is a 10 minute walk away has recorded over 270 birds and there are bird walks arranged. Liz can also arrange bird walks with the Wits Birding Club.
Delta’s bird list is amazing with their website recording 269 species seen since 2002. Around the various dams there are ducks, coots, moorhens and other water birds, as well as the odd kingfisher; the open veld sections attract bishops and weavers, guineafowl and francolin, and the areas of denser bush attract birds such as Willow Warblers, Great Reed-Warblers, and Tawny-flanked Prinias, sparrowhawks and owls. The park also seems to regularly attract highly unusual species and in the past seven years Madagscar Cuckoo, Longtailed Pipit, and Ayres Hawk-Eagle, amongst others, have been recorded.
