This is a protected area of coastal dunes, and Lowland Fynbos. On the way, we stopped at Sir Lowrey’s Pass where we saw the fabulous Cape Rockjumper. We missed the other target endemic, Victorin’s Warbler, which had gone quiet.
Near the entrance to the reserve, a group of Wattled Starlings was found near a colony of Red Bishops. Both the Greater and Lesser Honeyguides were also in the area, and it was a special treat to see a Cape Griffon soaring overhead. Cape Mountain Zebra may be seen.
Common Fiscals were easily found in the Reserve, as well as a long distance view of a displaying Stanley’s Bustard. A Hoopoe wandered through one of the picnic area, and it was interesting to see the darker brown plumage of this race compared to the European race. It has been treated as a separate species, and may be again.
