I went to Die Oog yesterday afternoon. The water level of this sanctuary is still very low. Lower than it was last year this time. Even the rains of the last few days has not made much difference.
The birding life also did not show much either. The family of YellowBill Ducks were there as was the Little Grebe pair, there were a couple of Moorhen and White Knobbed Coot. The solitary cormorant was there.
Other birds seen were some Cape White-eyes, a pair of Cape Bulbul, some Cape Sparrow and a flock of Helmeted Guineafowl. As I was leaving about 20 Hadeda landed in the trees next to the lake. No sign of the Cape and Masked Weavers yet.
