Back to paradise

Much the same as yesterday morning around the beach and pool in Lambert's Bay plus 3 Three-banded Plovers, a pair of Cape Shovelers and 3 Pied Kingfishers here today.

Several Haviside’s Dolphins offshore but not being acrobatic today in the calmer sea.

Few birds seen on the drive to De Hoop with both Red and Yellow Bishops, several Yellow-billed Kites, Blue Cranes, Spur-winged Geese, Greater Striped Swallows and a probable Verraux’s Eagle of note.

1+ Agulhas Long-billed Larks, Yellow Bishop, Fiscal Flycatcher, Hadeda Ibis and several Blue Cranes along the road into De Hoop park mid afternoon.
