African Black Oystercatcher bird count

African Black Oystercatcher bird count

Pearly Beach Conservancy

This question was put to me a few months ago and I had no idea, so we started a bird count, dividing the Pearly Beach coast into 4 sections and simply counting every time we went for a walk.

 What we found was interesting, not only do the numbers fluctuate on time of year and varying tides but we found we were going for more walks and noticing more of our environment!

This study will take a year at least! And needs support from the community and visitors, so if you fancy some fresh air and a stroll with purpose in a pristine shoreline environment look no further than Pearly Beach.
