New Oog Update

Went to Die Oog Bird Sanctuary today. Update on the water level looks very promising. The rescent rain has upped the water level considerably. Notable bird updates is that there was a Spurwing Goose at the sanctuary today. The Coot juveniles are quite big now and i saw at least three pairs of Coot with juveniles.

I took quite a few photos of the island and also the bird life. The weavers are busy building nests again and seems like the Dikkops are nesting too. There are plenty warblers flitting about the marshy area below the lake. Also came across a couple of sunbirds too. Generally bird life at Die Oog is returning to normal. Even saw a bunch of Mousebirds forraging in the pile of garden rubble lying inside the grounds.
