Havent blogged in awhile but only because the last few weeks have not been ideal for birding with it raining most weekends. Today seems Ideal for birding though so I’ll be heading out to Die Oog later to see what is about. Hope to have another entry later.
Went to Die Oog earlier in between a few showers which are still persisting today in Cape Town. The water levels are getting a lot higher. But bird life at Die Oog was dismal. Only saw Egyptian Geese, Red-knobed Coot adults and juveniles, a lone moorhen, a pair of dabchick, and a lone thick knee. No hadeda no warblers. The only lively area was the Cape Weaver colony which had weavers building at least 6 new nests. On the way home I saw another Hadeda with a red ring on. Unfortunately the photo I took was of inferiour quality so I could see its code but I did notice the ring was very faded maybe an older bird.
Cape Sharkspotters reported another Shark Attack in south africa. A 29 year old Centurion man was attacked while surfing at Stilbaai in the Overberg. He is said to be in a serious but stable condition.
Am on a birding holiday in St Helena Bay. Will blog all about my trip when I get back home.
