On Sunday, Rene and I went out to do the annual winter waterbird count (Part of the CWAC project in South Africa – http://cwac.adu.org.za). Unfortunately when we arrived at the site, the fog was so thick that visibility was too limited to count the birds.
Before we moved off to the next site, we managed to wonder around in the area a bit, taking advantage of the fog and the forest to get some shots.
A morning walk up the side of Table Mountain into Newlands Forest, just a day after some rain finally hit the drought stricken Cape Town. Our hope was that there would be some water in the small streams that flow through the forests, but the rivers were mostly dry, with very little water in those that did have. We’re down to the last dregs of the supply dams, desperate for the arrival of some winter rain.
