Roaring Rooi Els

Our April morning walk took place in gale-force winds and there was no chance of spotting a wind-blown Cape Rock-Jumper at Rooi Els. We were however entertained by a flock of 30+ White Storks circling overhead, no doubt flexing their muscles for the long trip ahead. The Orange-breasted, Southern Double-collared & Malachite Sunbirds were plentiful and Cape Rock- Thrush, Cape Bunting and Familiar Chat did not disappoint. We popped in at Stony Point and ticked the Penguins without braving the wind, before heading for a more sheltered walk in Harold Porter gardens, where we had good views of the African Black Ducks, and a lonely Paradise Flycatcher and Swee Waxbill.
