I’ve missed my Happy Place not having had a visit there for months so Early and I took a drive there on Thursday afternoon. It was a gorgeous day but there was a bit of a South Easterly wind blowing.
As we expected the flamingos were out if full force, scattered across the first two pans.
Most of them were in deeper water upending like ducks.
The highlight of the day was an African Snipe but he the reeds were either in front of his face or he turned his back to us – these were the best I could get!
We know a place where nine times out of ten we find the spotted eagle-owls. Today we found mother, father and the baby who is quite big now. Photography was not good.
Among many others we also had good sightings of purple swamphen, grey and purple heron but they didn’t pose for long enough.
So with a contented feeling we made our way home but I’m sure it won’t be the last visit we make to False Bay Ecology Park while we are here for the holidays.
