As transformed landscapes go, the southern Cape’s Overberg is up there at the top of the list, its natural renosterveld vegetation replaced by vast expanses of pasture and crops. It’s not all bad news for birds, but there’s not much good news either.
Nerine humilis was introduced to me by Bruce Anderson following a field trip with John Manning in the Southern Cape. The inspiration for this trip followed the discovery of a very unusual form of Nerine humilis with exceptionally long filaments and styles on the foothills of the Langeberg mountains near Suurbraak.
