The Black Skimmer is back!

I can hardly believe that I am posting this, but here goes…Robin Wood (yes, that’s right, the same lady that found the first one!) has just been in touch to report that she has located a or the  BLACK SKIMMER again this morning! This time, she has seen the bird on Milnerton Lagoon very close to the Woodbridge Island turn-off. It was seen just a short distance upstream of the large island in the middle of the lagoon there and heading north in the direction of Rietvlei. Perhaps it is going to end up where it started off…?
I’m sure there are going to be lots of people heading out there to  look for it now, so hopefully, I’ll have some further positive news to report on it later. Let’s hope it gets found again and stays put for a while…  Good luck if you are planning on chasing it!  Kind regards  Trevor
