Oyster Catchers

Oyster Catchers Hermanus

This pair of beautiful Oyster Catchers have been sitting on their nest for well over 3 weeks in the spectacular Bientangs Cave Restaurant in Hermanus, Western Cape.

I love this photo of the parent protecting her egg from the cormorant!

Boulders Bay Penguin Colony | Cape Town

Penguins inSouth Africa? I had no idea we would be able to walk amongst penguins in Cape Town, in a beautiful setting in Boulders Beach.

`’ There are few places in the world where you can get this close to a breeding colony of penguins, swim close to them in the sea and enjoy their private sandy beach.

Boulders Beach is situated near Simon’s Town in False Bay between Fish Hoek and Cape Point.

It’s about 2km from the Simon’s Town train station, which is the last stop on the scenic Southern Line railway route. The sea here is good for swimming and the big, round boulders on the sandy beach provide some shade and shelter. Since it forms part of the Table Mountain National Park, there is an entrance fee, which goes towards paying for conservation of the endangered African penguins that live here.`’
