Knysna Warbler

Bradypterus sylvaticus

This rarely seen, endemic species is classified as “vulnerable”, because it has a small, extremely fragmented range and population, which are considered to be declining due to the degradation and loss of suitable habitat. Typically found in thick, tangled vegetation, this species is restricted to remnant forest patches in coastal regions of the Eastern and Western Cape.

I was extremely lucky to find this species in September 2013 outside our chalet at Umngazi River Bungalows. To read more about this particular sighting feel free to follow this link: Vulnerable, secretive, uncommon and localised!
