On the road again

Few birds seen on a quick look round the Quivertree Restcamp first thing, with Dusky Sunbird, Mountain Wheatear, Rock Martin and Cape Sparrow again present.

Rock Martin

The Cheetahs seen patrolling around the edge of their vast enclosure as we left.


Nearby, a Red-faced Mousebird just outside Keetmanshoop briefly.

1 Goliath Heron and 2 African Black Ducks on the Orange River at midday on a very short stop before we crossed back into South Africa.

Very little seen on the long drive south between here and Lambert’s Bay, with Damara Canary, Ludwig’s Bustard and several Greater Striped Swallows by the road of note. A short drive along the track towards Eland Bay late afternoon was very productive with several Cape Francolin, Karoo Scrub-Robins, Bokmakieries, a Cape Bunting and a family of Stonechats around the scrub.

Also many Cape Gannets and cormorant spp. offshore.
